On January 1, 2016 Assembly Bill 139 went into effect in California allowing a non-probate method for conveying real property upon death, now known as a Revocable Transfer on Death Deed (“TOD Deed”). This deed is really just a future conveyance that provides that a certain person will get the property upon their transferor’s death.
How it works? The grantor determines that they would like their property to go to someone upon their death. They record the TOD and then when they die the person who they named in the deed gets the property. But, before they die, they can change their mind and decide that they do not want the property to go to that person upon their death – very much like a will or a trust.
