Texas Enhanced Life Estate Deed

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.
