Good afternoon Judy. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

Without knowing specifically what form you are looking at, I cannot tell you for sure. If you would be able to give me a link or attach the actual form to this thread, I will be happy to take a look. Thank you!

The site is Free Real Estate Forms. com. The form is Beneficiary Deed form.

Thanks for responding. Without knowing I am looking at the actual deed you're askinga bout, I am not confident that I can provide a complete and accurate assessment. Therefore, I am going to opt out to open your question up to all experts so another expert can hopefully timely provide you the information you seek. Please do not respond to this post as it will only slow the process of such an expert picking up your question. Take care.

Hi and welcome to JA . Ray here a new expert.I appreciate your patience today.

Here is the correct deed form , you can get it for free.This would once signed and filed leave you with a life estate and the remainderman inherits it when you decease.These are also referred to as lady bird of enhanced life estate deeds.This allows you to have a life interest, pay taxes for your life, and it passes tot he other party called remainderman when you decease.You are the grantor here, you and the other party are grantees, you get a life estate, other grantee gets it when you pass.

I appreciate your patience and the chance to help you today.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.

It says free but talks about purchasing the completed form, so what is the cost if I complete and print from the site?
