How to avoid probate on your condo or house
Use an enhanced life estate deed or a lady bird deed to avoid probate on your house or condo.
Jeff: We own a condo in South Daytona, Florida.
Attorney Tom Olsen: All right.
Jeff: We have one great son, we have no other children and we have him as payable on death with all our accounts but we don't have him on the condo. When we pass on the glory, do we need to have him on there or it would go automatically to him?
Attorney Tom Olsen: No, there's nothing automatic about this, Jeff. Now, Jeff, you do want to avoid probate on this condo. We have a great tool for avoiding probate on your condo it's called a ladybird deed. This a deed that I would prepare, it would state that as long as you or your wife are alive, it is your condo to do with as you please. No restrictions whatsoever but that when you have passed away the home would automatically go to your son, no headaches, no hassles, no probate.
