Then upon your death, your home will pass to the person or persons you name in the Transfer on Death Deed.surviving spouse:* Even if you were married at the time ofthe purchase of the home.* Even if you and your spouse are bothnamed in the deed.* Even if you both lived in the hometogether.* Even if you both made the paymentstogether.* Even if your spouse has named you inhis or her Will without going to probate.It is often assumed that when a spouse dies, the title to the couple’s home automatically becomes the surviving spouse’s property and nothing needs to be done. This is a false assumption. Even if the deceased person had a Will leaving his or her interest in the home to his or her spouse, this doesn’t mean nothing needs to be done. You still need to go through probate or a legal process to transfer title toyour home to the surviving spouse.To transfer your home to someone on your death without going to probate, the answer is a Texas Transfer on Death Deed. But, you must have this document prepared and filed at the courthouse – before youThe Transfer on Death Deed works similar to a beneficiary designation on an insurance policy or a bank account. In a Transfer on Death Deed, you are able to name a primary beneficiary and alternate beneficiaries. For example, you may name your spouse and if your spouse passes away before you, then your house will pass to your children.A Transfer on Death Deed is very cost effective – probate is expensive. If upon your death, your family can agree on the distribution your personal and household items, and if you have beneficiaries on all of your financial assets, then with a Transfer on Death Deed there is no need to incur the high price of probate.
