There is a state-specific form to prepare to formalize the transfer of property upon your passing - Simple Revocable Transfer on Death Deed Form, issued by the California Judicial Branch. This Beneficiary Deed has to follow the regulations of the California Probate Code otherwise it may be declared unenforceable: describe the property and identify the individual or individuals who will obtain it, transfer the property with all debts and liens, and submit a copy of the deed to the clerk of the local county to update the title history.
