A Washington transfer on death deed is a written instrument used to designate a real estate beneficiary who will inherit the property upon the current owner’s death. The deed allows an owner to pass on their property without having their estate go through probate and, unlike a will, transfers ownership immediately after the owner’s death. An owner’s property rights remain the same after recording a transfer on death deed, and they may cancel the deed at any point by filing an instrument of revocation. This type of deed will convey the property’s title without warranty, leaving the beneficiary liable for any encumbrances that remain unresolved.
