Clarification on Transfer on Death Deeds

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

The nonprobate transfer enacted in recent years, the revocable transfer upon death deed (TODD), has created some confusion with regard to its implementation since going into effect. Specifically, there is an outstanding question as to whether the law requires that a FAQ contained in the law need be recorded along with the deed itself in order for it to be valid. 

Seemingly in response to this question, Assembly Member Chau has introduced AB 1739, which would clarify that TODDs recorded without the FAQs are still valid. 

The California Law Revision Commission is continuing to examine the issue, and has requested comments on the legislation that created the TODD.
