If the rules of marital society applies to your marriage and the house was bought under marriage, there is no real need of putting the deeds under your spouse name as it belongs to her 50% by law. Any formal adjudication on deeds will just have a 1% tax charge. If you want to donate some of the property to your children you will have to pay Donation tax ( equal to inheritance tax), unless you can enforce a Treaty to avoid double imposition of taxes here.

Maybe your advisor was suggesting you to make a will.
