OPINION OF THE MICHIGAN PROBATE COURT
IN THE MATTER OF THE ESTATE OF DOLORES ANN DAVIS
PROBATE COURT, WAYNE COUNTY
MARCH 29, 2005
Dolores Ann Davis passed away on May 8, 2004. Davis was
survived by two daughters. At the time of her death, Davis owed
Dearborn Federal Credit Union (DFCU) $3,239.15. Prior to her
death, Ms. Davis executed a quitclaim deed that conveyed her home to
her two daughters and reserved a life estate with full power of dispo-
sition, power to sell, rent, and profits thereof. DFCU petitioned the
Probate Court, seeking to have said Court appoint DFCU's attorney
as the personal representative for the Estate of Ms. Davis and to set
aside said deed as fraudulent. The Probate Court denied DFCU's pe-
tition, and subsequent request for reconsideration, because under
Michigan law, this type of deed is not a transfer within the meaning
of the Uniform Fraudulent Conveyances Act.
1. Lady Bird Deed
A deed in which the grantor reserves a life estate with full
power of disposition, power to sell, rent and profits thereof is com-
monly known as a Lady Bird deed.
2. Enhanced Life Estate Deed
The more accurate way to define a Lady Bird deed is to clas-
sify the conveyance as an Enhanced Life Estate Deed.
