Texas Life Estate Deed

This deed transfers title of real property into two different interests. The two interests become the owners of the property. However, each interest has separate rights of possession.

The two interests created by the life estate deed are:

  • The life estate interest. This interest is called the “life tenant”
  • The remainder interest. This interest is called the “remainderman”

Avoiding probate may be a primary reason and benefit for transferring property with a life estate deed.

Life Estate Deed points:

  • The life estate deed removes the property from the life tenant’s estate and transfers the property upon the death of the life tenant. This eliminates the property from probate.
  • Once this deed is created, the life tenant usually CANNOT make changes to title of the property. The consent of the remainderman will be required unless the deed states differently.
  • Both interests hold title at the same time. The life tenant has current possession. The remainderman gains possession when the life tenant dies.
  • In many cases, the transfer may not be considered a gift and therefore is not subject to gift tax.
  • Life tenant should maintain the property and pay the taxes and insurance.
  • Avoiding probate, the title may be cleared quickly.
  • Some states may require a death certificate to be recorded with the register of deeds office in the county where the property is located.
