Understanding Beneficiary Deeds

As a home owner, you may want your property to go to your children upon your death. However, you may have heard that it is impossible to transfer your property outside of the court administered probate process. This is not true. Homeowners in Missouri have an option to automatically transfer their property to a beneficiary via a beneficiary deed. This works by making the homeowner’s children joint tenants immediately.

One of the benefits of a beneficiary deed is that the homeowner maintains complete control over the real estate during his or her life. The process of establishing a beneficiary deed is relatively straightforward, only requiring your signature. The attorneys at our firm can gather the information necessary to prepare the required paperwork to complete the process. We can also prepare an affidavit of death in order to complete the beneficiary title. We offer a full range of estate planning services:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Probate and estate administration
