Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
I am not sure I completely understand your question....
Are you asking if you can deed over property to your son that you have already sold to someone else?
Or if you can leave a property you own to your son that only becomes effective upon your death?
The comment "that you have sold the property previously" is what is confusing me...
Ok, if this is a situation where you sold the house to him and are carrying the mortgage by seller financing and the house is still in your name, then you can execute a deed over to him at any time, have it notarized, and then just not record it. A deed is completely legal once it is signed and notarized but if you don't record the deed, then no one will know about the transfer.
Then once you passed, son could just record the deed then to transfer the property over to his name.
