Transfer of Death Deeds in Wisconsin
Recently an interesting fact came to my attention regarding transfer on death deeds in Wisconsin; if the form is completed, signed, and notarized it does NOT need to actually be filed with the register of deeds prior to death. Yes, the Dane County register of deeds is stating that they will accept it after death, followed by the HT-110 form to transfer ownership. As I write this, this fact surprises me. My instinct was that it would have to be on file prior to death. Since these are relatively new instruments in Wisconsin, it is a procedural step I plan to monitor.
