What is a Lady Bird Deed

This deed is a unique type of life estate deed. The lady bird deed is sometimes known as an “Enhanced Life Estate Deed”.

Differing from the Life Estate Deed, the Lady Bird Deed DOES give grantor the option to change the grantee without the consent of the grantee. The grantor also retains the right to sell or mortgage the property.

Enhanced Life Estate Deed Texas

The owner who creates a Ladybird Deed or Enhanced Life Estate Deed transfers their own real property to themselves for their lifetime and becomes known as a “life tenant”.

  • The grantor is known as the Life Tenant.
  • This transfer creates a life estate.
  • The grantor names a beneficiary who becomes the “Remainderman”.
  • The beneficiary is the grantee and is known as the remainderman.
  • Grantor can name one or more people, organizations of trusts as grantee.

Upon the life tenant’s death, the property transfers to the remainderman without the need for probate.

Note: The information provided is not intended as tax advice. Please consult a CPA or a tax advisor for tax questions.

Points about Lady Bird Deeds

  • A lady bird deed gives the life tenant complete control of the property. Life tenant maintains the right to use the property in any legal way they chose during his or her lifetime.
  • The life tenant may change the remainderman at any time without consent from the original remainderman.
  • Life tenant may mortgage or sell the property without consent of the remainderman.
  • As control is retained by the life tenant, this transfer may be considered an incomplete gift for tax purposes.
  • As the property transfers by deed to the remainderman upon life tenants’ death, it does not require probate.
  • This deed protects the homestead status of the property.
  • This deed should not have an effect on the life tenants ability to qualify for medicaid.
