Texas Enhanced Life Estate Deed Form

Select the county where the PROPERTY is located.
A Lady Bird deed, also called an enhanced life estate deed or reservation of a life estate with a general power of appointment, is a useful estate planning tool. When executed, the grantor conveys a life estate in real property to himself, with the remainder conveyed to the beneficiary of his choice, thereby avoiding the probate process. This type of deed enables the grantor to preserve homestead status (if claimed) as well as any deductions, protections, and tax exemptions associated with the real estate during his lifetime. In addition, he retains absolute control over the property, allowing for the option to change the beneficiary or even sell, convey, or mortgage the property before the transfer of ownership goes into effect upon the grantor’s death.

Texas Enhanced Life Estate Deed forms must meet local and state statutory requirements for content and format. The most important county formatting requirements in Texas are the margin requirements. Failing to meet the recorder's document margin requirements can lead to the document being assessed with a non-compliant fee or being outright rejected for recording.

Said: I have not had time to make arrangements for the witnesses and being notarized yet. It looks great. I had ordered a free one from the state and it was very scary. My career was in Property Tax for Oil and Gas so am familiar with these forms but wanted no mistakes so I ordered yours.
