Nebraska transfer on death deed is an estate planning tool that allows a property owner (the transferor) to choose a beneficiary to receive real estate upon their death. During the transferor’s lifetime, they retain their property rights and may convey or encumber the real estate without limitation. They may also terminate the deed at any point by recording a revocation instrument. Upon the transferor’s death, their property passes to the beneficiary without the need for probate administration.

A transfer on death deed must be recorded with the Register of Deeds prior to the transferor’s death and within thirty (30) days after being executed. These same recording requirements apply to a revocation instrument made by the transferor.
