If the granter of the lady bird enhanced life estate will dies unexpectedly before the grantors estate plans are completed does it go to the will? All that are names in the will are not on the lady bird deed would life plan still followed at that point? Confused how it works together
No way to tell for sure here on line, especially from this somewhat confusing set of facts (e., what do you mean by "before the grantors estate plans are completed." GENERALLY, if a Lady Bird deed is properly executed and acknowledged, delivered, accepted, and recorded; and then is neither rescinded, modified or revoked later by the grantor before death, it will be considered valid and enforceable, outside the will and probate, and the property will be owned by the LE beneficiaries ONLY, via the deed. But that is a GENERAL observation. Best to take the deed to a good local real litigator or probate lawyer to determine what needs to be done. Hope this helps. gsg
