220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0369 Life Estate. The granting of a life estate constitutes a change in ownership, even though the estate is to terminate upon the happening of specified conditions, such as the failure of the life tenant to reside on the property. The execution of a grant deed by the life tenant which is to take effect on his or her death is of no significance since it is not presently operative and would, in any event, be an attempt to transfer legal title which is held by the grantor of the life estate. C 6/30/1983.
