If you wish to give someone a gift it is a good idea to sign a deed of gift. In a deed of gift one can, for example, prescribe that the gift must be private property, which means it must not be included in an estate division as a result of divorce or in the event of dissolution of a cohabitation relationship. You can also prescribe various terms that are to apply to the gift, e.g. that you as the giver of the gift must have right of use of the property during your lifetime.
