What is the Vermont Enhanced Life Estate Warranty Deed?

Using Enhanced Life Estate Deeds in Vermont

Owners of real property located in Vermont have access to a useful estate planning document: the Enhanced Life Estate Deed.

In most cases, traditional warranty or quitclaim deeds convey a present interest in property, meaning that as soon as the grantor (seller) signs the deed, the grantee (buyer) owns the land. One way to forestall the transfer is to use a life estate, which allows the owner to keep possession until death. The grantee becomes what's known as a remainderman, or someone who holds a remainder interest in the property during the owner's life. To protect that interest, the grantee must agree to changes in the property's use. Note that transfers initiated under traditional deeds and life estates are permanent.

Enhanced life estate deeds, also known as Ladybird or Granai deeds, convey a revocable future interest in real estate, with the transfer of the remaining title rights to take place when the grantor (owner) dies. These deeds reserve all present ownership rights for the owners, including the right to sell, lease, mortgage or convey the property, with no obligation for notice to or authorization from the grantees.

Vermont's Ladybird deeds transfer the property outside of the owner's will, without the need for probate. Even so, to avoid unnecessary complications, owners should make sure there are no conflicting bequests in their wills.

Enhanced life estate deeds offer a flexible, convenient tool for a comprehensive estate plan, but they may not be appropriate in all cases. Contact an attorney with specific questions or for complex situations.

Review: Deeds.com made this process of electronic document recording so easy! The communication was quick, friendly, helpful and efficient. I am out of state and have administrative items to handle for my father who has Alzheimer's. Deeds.com is a great service. I highly recommend them, and will use them again when the time comes.

Name: Victor K.

Review: The form I needed was correct and paginated as required. It was accepted w/o penalties. I was not happy about the information which I found way too scant. One sample form does not cover enough possibilities, more would be helpful. The instruction page is a bit better but sometimes it is not clear enough - sometimes it is not clear what the numbered items in the form correspond to. There is no guidance about the process and it would take very little to provide it. Example about "description", say where to find. There is a bunch of "free forms" attached but no guide on which are needed and when. Example: at the counter I was given a paper "conveyance" form and asked to fill it - I did not know it was needed and what it did and so I had not d

Review: Amazing service. Immediate responses at all hours of the day and prevent late in the evening! Patient and friendly. I will say that Adobe scan did not work well for me. Notes app for IOS has a scan feature and that seemed to work best.

Review: I never did this before and I found the service easy however confusing about the process and expectations. I had a trust prepared and needed to record our home deed to the trust. Now that I am almost finished waiting for the Maricopa county record the deed it seems so easy.

Review: I found the documents I needed and so many more that I will utilize for business, personal and family needs. Also I made a purchase of an additional document I did not need that serves the same purpose as one I purchased and Deeds.com had no issue refunding the unnecessary document in an unbelievably quick response and refund. I would recommend this document provider to everyone including legal office management.

Name: Sharon G.

Review: I could not be happier with the service afforded by Deeds.com. After having been directed to two other organizations who purportedly performed this service and being told they could not accommodate me, I found Deeds.com. The website is extremely easy to use, the directions are clear and concise. The site updated me regularly as the documents were progressing through the process, and the detailing of costs was great. The turn-around -- which isn't completely in the hands of the site -- was incredibly quick. I'd use this group again without reservation. As a person who'd have to otherwise travel almost five hours to record, this has been heaven-sent!
