Then upon your death, your home will pass to the person or persons you name in the Transfer on Death Deed.The Transfer on Death Deed works similar to a beneficiary designation on an insurance policy or a bank account. In a Transfer on Death Deed, you are able to name a primary beneficiary and alternate beneficiaries. For example, you may name your spouse and if your spouse passes away before you, then your house will pass to your children.A Transfer on Death Deed is very cost effective – probate is expensive. If upon your death, your family can agree on the distribution your personal and household items, and if you have beneficiaries on all of your financial assets, then with a Transfer on Death Deed there is no need to incur the high price of probate.

This is a false assumption. Even if the deceased person had a Will leaving his or her interest in the home to his or her spouse, this doesn’t mean nothing needs to be done. You still need to go through probate or a legal process to transfer title toyour home to the surviving spouse.To transfer your home to someone on your death without going to probate, the answer is a Texas Transfer on Death Deed. But, you must have this document prepared and filed at the courthouse – before youArea Girl Scouts Earn Prestigious Gold AwardGirl Scouts of Southwest Texas is thrilled to announce 24 Girl Scouts received their Girl Scout Gold Award at a special ceremony in May at the Red Berry Estate in San Antonio.Through pursuing the Gold Award, Girl Scouts, change the world by tackling issues they are passionate about to drive lasting change in their communities and beyond while they learn essential skills that will prepare them for all aspects of life.Area girls who received this honor and who are graduating seniors include: Caelin Alspaugh, 18, of Troop 828, whose “Blankets of Hope” project focused on making face masks and blankets for the city’s homeless population and Haven for Hope; Emma Garza, 18, of Troop 592, whose project “Emma’s Playful Puppets” had her building puppets and a puppet set at her church so that children there could have more access to arts programs; Emily LaJoie, 18, of Troop 881, whose project “Comfort and Awareness” focused on bringing attention to Family Violence Prevention Services Inc. and its work with women and children, as well as conducting a blanket drive for the organization; Gianna Perez, 17, of Troop 553, whose project “Nature Building Rehab and Reptile Educational Information” was focused on restoring the Nature Building at Camp C.A.M.P. to improve the space forits reptile residents and the experience for visitors; Sydney Yanez, 18, of Troop 553, whose project “C.A.M.P.
