Editor Comments

To be effective, a transfer on death deed must be recorded before the transferor's death. The same requirement applies to an instrument of revocation.

Whether an instrument concerning property that contains an electronic signature may be recorded is governed by Section 12.0011 of the Property Code.

This section of the Texas Real Property Transfer on Death Act fully adopts the substance of Section 19 of the Uniform Real Property Transfer on Death Act.

The boilerplate language contained in this section has been included, word-for-word, in many of the uniform acts drafted by the Uniform Law Commission.

Nevertheless, the intent, effect and necessity of this section are all relatively obscure. For more information, review February 2008 Meeting Draft at 30-31.
