what does LE mean after your name on your deed
An LE after the name of the owner on the deed refers to the life estate clause on the deed. This means that although the owner has transferred the ownership to someone else through the deed, he/she still retains the right to stay in the property till his/her death. This also implies that the grantee(s) cannot ask the grantor to vacate the property or cannot sell it off as long as the grantor is alive.
Am a bit confused, perhaps you can help, Ihope! If the "owner" is the grantee, and the "former owner" the grantor, following your above explaination, it would be the grantor who had the "L/E" after their name, andthe grantee would not be able to sell the property or otherwise ask the grantor to vacate.
So why would the grantee have the "L/E" after their name?
What does l/e etal mean after your name on deed?
This is something which your real estate attorney will be able to answer better. You should show the property deed to him and he will guide you further in this regard.
do both parties required to sign on the sale of property if the grantor has le to the grantee
As far as I know it is must for the grantor to sign the property deed. However, in some states, it is required that the grantee should also sign the deed.
When the owner dies does the home still go thru probate? Does the L/E owner asume all if any debt left after the owner dies? We live in Florida.
Welcome to forums!
If there is a will, then after the death of the owner, it has to go through a probate. After the death of the owner of the property, the estate will pay off the debt. However, if there is a co-owner, then it becomes the responsibility of the co-owner to pay off the debt.
Feel free to ask if you've further queries.
What does the Est after the owners name on property appraiser mean ?
Welcome to the forums!
I guess "Est" in your case means "Established". You can contact your property appraiser and he can better clarify the matter.
