Lady Bird Deed

A best kept FLORIDA estate planning secret 🦩

HOW THE LADY BIRD DEED WORKS

With a Lady Bird Deed, the owner of the property referred to as the “Life Tenant,” retains complete control over the property during his or her lifetime.

The Life Tenant has the right to mortgage or sell the property without the consent of the beneficiaries or the remaindermen named in the deed because the property does not transfer until the death of the Life Tenant.

Upon the passing of the Life Tenant, the beneficiaries will file the death certificate in the public records, which is all that is needed for the title to pass to them.
