What our customers are saying

Fast and easy real estate transfers


texas real estate law

Texas real estate law differs from other states in some cases. While the basic legal principles are the same, the names of the documents sometimes vary between states. It is important to use the correct type of deed. Furthermore, specific language may be needed to avoid complications in the future. Deeds may be used to:

  • Add or remove a name from the property title
  • Transfer real estate property to a family member or a business
  • Transfer property into a trust or a life estate
  • Transfer property from an ex-spouse
  • Transfer property to your child or children
  • Gift property to your child or children
  • Transfer heir property from one heir to another
  • To transfer mineral rights in a property

Note: A Deed is the document that allows a real estate title transfer to take place.

Good to know: TITLE is the legal right of property ownership. DEEDS are the documents used to transfer property title. Property title transfers require a deed.

Note: In most cases, a deed only needs to be signed by the person transferring the property. It can be signed anywhere in the world that has a notary. Texas does not require witnesses. Only a notary is required.

Deed transfer in Texas

The general requirements for a real estate deed transfer in Texas are:

  • A deed specifying the transfer
  • The description of the property
  • The name of the person transferring the property and the name of the person or entity receiving the property
  • Proper signatures and acknowledgement by a notary

Good to know: If the property owner is in another state or another country, he or she can still transfer the property. The owner does not need to be in Texas to transfer the property. You can email the ready-to-be-signed deed to the owner anywhere in the world.

If there is more than one owner, they each need to sign in front of a notary. However, they do not need to sign at the same time or at the same place.

Property deed transfer

The type of property deed transfer you should use depends on what your goal is for transferring the property. Examples might be:

Note: In Texas, your house does not automatically pass to your spouse when you die. You will need a separate signed and notarized Right of Survivorship. Without this document, your property may pass to your children from a prior marriage.

Good to know: A deed transfers property between living people and existing entities. If a property owner is deceased, you may need an Affidavit of Heirship, a probated Will or court order which declares heirship.
