  • Avoid probate and pass on your Colorado real estate with a simple transfer-on-death deed

    If you own real estate in Colorado and want to make sure it passes to your heirs without the hassle of probate court, you can use a transfer-on-death (TOD) deed. This document transfers ownership of your property just like a regular deed you might use to transfer real estate, but with a crucial difference: It doesn't take effect until after your death.

    It's easy to make a TOD deed.  You'll simply complete the following steps:

    • fill in information about you and the TOD beneficiary
    • provide a description of the property
    • check over the completed deed
    • sign the deed in front of a notary public, and
    • record the deed at the recorder's office in the county where the property is located.

     

    Take care of your beneficiaries and help them to avoid probate with this plain English eForm from Nolo.

Easy

By John S.

Easy to fill out. If the CO Registrar of Deeds accepts the notarized copy I just sent to them, worth every cent of the subscription. Will keep NOLO web site in my listing from now on.

Easy to complete

By Brenda B.

This form was extremely easy to prepare. I prepared it for our two properties in Colorado in 15 minutes; took them to our bank to got them notarized & mailed to our County Recorder all in the same day. Now I have more peace od mind if we die from COVID, our real property will easily transfer to our son as we want.

Review

By Barbara W.

I was excited to be able to do the TOB online. It took some time. It was easier than I thought. It was comforting to know I could do the deed without a lawyer. A lawyer quote was $500-$1k. That was not in my budget.

Low Cost Solution

By Linda L.

My estate planning attorney in California recommended this product to me. It "did the trick" at minimal cost.
