Deed or Gift
A Deed of Gift documents a significant gift to another person during one's lifetime. When
prepared and notarized by a Notary, it proves the donor's intention for the gift which can be
required to counter undue influence or arguments after the donor's death. This can also be useful in circumstances where a person near death wants to transfer their assets or home into joint tenancy or wants to give a significant sum of money or gift to another person during their lifetime.
Who should consider a Deed of Gift?
Anyone who wants to transfer an asset, as a gift, before their death.
