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.

Bobby W. said: The site delivered just what it promised - I needed a specific deed formatted for a specific county/state, and they delivered it at a great price. One note for improvement - it is not intuitively obvious that I could go back and re-download if necessary and this caused me stress, but a follow up email alleviated this. Great service!

Reply from Staff: Thank you for the kind words Bobby, have a great day!


Jina N. said: Awesome site!! You guys really make it simple to understand and access any Deeds that I need. I know you keep very up to date forms, as my county is hard core when it comes to the smallest of details, even compared to every other county across the state. Yet you made it simple and quick, and I never had to redo anything. Even the clerk was impressed that I had it filled out correctly the first time, as that usually never happened. Even the size of type/font and the margins were perfect. That saved a lot of time, money and most of all, frustration. I've recommended you to relatives, friends and co-workers. Thanks to the staff at deeds dot com !! I truly appreciate you. j
