Can someone quitclaim his property to me instead of leaving it in his will?
A person can quitclaim property to a beneficiary through a deed and there’s two deeds where this can be accomplished. One is a deed where the grantor retains a life of state and names the beneficiary as a remainder one. Another one is to name the beneficiary as a co-owner currently with the current owner. You should seek the advice of an attorney before you name a beneficiary a co-owner today because you may bring in his creditors, you may bring in a marital dispute. There’s advantages and disadvantages of naming a beneficiary a co-owner with right of survivor-ship.
