Are Transfer on Death Deeds for Real Estate still an option in Ohio? My father put me on a Survivorship Deed instead. Thanks.

Asked about 1 year ago - Massillon, OH

I don't want to be on the title now, as I now am, until his time comes unless TODD's are no longer an option in Ohio.
I inherited a property from my mother via a TODD but she prepared it in the early 1990's.
Are they still an option in Ohio?
Thanks.

    Answered . Yes, they are called a Transfer on Death Designation Affidavit (see http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/5302.22). I would strongly urge you to consult with a local real estate attorney concerning your circumstances and to most certainly have an attorney draft any documents you may decide to use. You can search for an attorney on Avvo or contact your local bar association for a referral. I hope this was helpful, and best of luck to you.

    Answered . Bad idea to put you on title
    please consult with attorney BEFORE you or your father do anymore transfers
    your father may have triggered a problem
    transferring back without consultation with an attorney may create a larger problem
