Along with the increase in the number of attorneys using Lady Bird Deeds, there has been an increase in the creativity of drafting techniques. While “pushing the envelope” is characteristic of attorneys, creative drafting techniques have led to uninsurable titles in some cases. The following video series is to articulate The Fund’s position regarding the use of Lady Bird Deeds, discuss some useful drafting techniques, and lastly raise some issues which are of concern to attorneys who regularly draft Lady Bird Deeds.
