How to transfer house title after death in Texas.

The process to transfer property title after a person dies in Texas depends on whether that person died with a Will, or died without a Will (also known as intestate).

If the owner had a Will, the will should be filed for probate within 4 years from the date of death.

However, if the property owner died without a Will (intestate), the deceased owners heirs will need to be identified before the property may be sold or transferred. The property cannot be transferred with clear title until the heirship has been properly identified. An Affidavit of Heirship is used for this purpose.

This situation may sometimes be unclear due to the similarity in the wording of Transfer on Death Deed. If you have questions, please contact us 972-960-1850.

Keep in mind: Although the name may imply otherwise, the Transfer on Death Deed is not the appropriate deed to use after the death of a property owner unless this deed was created before the property owners death.

Transfer of property after death without a Will.

Two documents are recommended to transfer a house when a property owner dies without a Will.

  1. The Affidavit of Heirship. This document is a sworn statement that identifies the heirs. It is signed in front of a notary by an heir and two witnesses knowledgeable about the family history of the deceased. Once it is signed notarized, the Affidavit of Heirship is ready to be recorded with the deeds records in the county where the property is located. Note: The Affidavit of Heirship alone does not transfer property title. It identifies the heirs, who are now the owners of the property.
  2. The Deed. This document will transfer property title if one or more of the identified heirs want to transfer their interest in the property.  The Deed is signed by the heirs transferring the property to one or more of the other heirs. Alternatively, the heirs may chose to sell the property.

Keep in mind: The Affidavit of Heirship should be recorded first to identify the heirs. However, both documents may be recorded at the same time.

Do you need an Affidavit of Heirship? Our fee to prepare this document is $300.  Affidavits of Heirship are prepared same day in most cases.

Our fee to prepare the deed is $195.
