West Virginia lady bird deed (or “enhanced life estate deed”) allows a real estate owner to name a beneficiary who will receive ownership of their property upon their death. This type of instrument conveys the transferor’s interest immediately after their passing without additional legal proceedings or probate. Recording a lady bird deed doesn’t affect a transferor’s property rights, and they may revoke the deed at any time. A lady bird deed functions similarly to a “transfer on death deed,” with the difference being that, while allowed in West Virginia, they are not recognized in the state’s statutes.
