New CA Law Establishes Method for “Transfer on Death Deed”

California real estate law

New CA Law Establishes Method for “Transfer on Death Deed” – to Convey title to Real Property upon Death.

AB 139 was signed into law by the CA governor recently and allows an interest in certain real property to be transferred on death by recording a revocable “Transfer on Death” deed.
This would allow for planned transfer of ownership of that property interest to take place upon the death of the owner. 

People who are interested to use such and estate planning method in CA should work with an experienced attorney and/or estate planning professional before using such a deed.
