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

If you own real estate in Oregon 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.
