California Probate Code Section 21110
21110. (a) Subject to subdivision (b), if a transferee is dead when the instrument is executed, or fails or is treated as failing to survive the transferor or until a future time required by the instrument, the issue of the deceased transferee take in the transferee s place in the manner provided in Section 240. A transferee under a class gift shall be a transferee for the purpose of this subdivision unless the transferee s death occurred before the execution of the instrument and that fact was known to the transferor when the instrument was executed.
(b) The issue of a deceased transferee do not take in the transferee s place if the instrument expresses a contrary intention or a substitute disposition. A requirement that the initial transferee survive the transferor or survive for a specified period of time after the death of the transferor constitutes a contrary intention. A requirement that the initial transferee survive until a future time that is related to the probate of the transferor s will or administration of the estate of the transferor constitutes a contrary intention.
(c) As used in this section, transferee means a person who is kindred of the transferor or kindred of a surviving, deceased, or former spouse of the transferor.
