South Dakota Transfer-on-Death Deeds Attorneys
Helping Clients Distribute Their Estates for 30 Years
Following your passing, entrusting your property to someone you trust is important. While a will can dictate where a person’s assets will go, a transfer-on-death deed allows those assets to immediately change owners without any risk of going through probate. With decades of experience helping clients clarify their wishes, the South Dakota lawyers at Aspen Legacy Planning can help you smoothly assign ownership of your assets to your loved ones. We offer no-obligation consultations, so call today and learn more about transfer-on-death deeds.
Benefits of a Transfer-on-Death Deed
People choose these kinds of deeds because it allows the recipient to immediately have ownership without going through probate. Any property transferred over in the transfer-on-death deed will also come with its accompanying mortgage and debt. Without going through probate, you can rest assured the property will make it where you want it in one piece.
Reasons to utilize a transfer-on-death deed include:
- Retaining complete control over the property up until your death
- Not having to worry about federal gift tax because the property is not gifted
- Being able to change or revoke the deed whenever you so desire
The process may sound like smooth sailing, but like most legally binding documents, trying to handle it on your own is not recommended. With the help of our experienced lawyers on your side, your beneficiary can enjoy your generous transfer of property after your passing. Get started on planning a stable and prosperous future for your loved ones by meeting with an estate legal professional who has your best interests at heart. Contact Aspen Legacy Planning today.
