Estate Planning: Life estates

Lifetime gifting of property is an approach to estate planning that has its place under the right circumstances. Lifetime gifting can either be outright or subject to a retained interest by the donor. An owner of real property, who owns their property free and clear, can deed (gift) their real property to another and still reserve (retain) a life estate for their lifetime. A deed with a life estate approach has its pluses and minuses.
