Retained Life Estates

Click Here for Detailed Explanation

How It Works

You transfer your residence, farm, or vacation home to Oxford University subject to a life estate.

You continue to live in the property for life or a specified term of years, while continuing to be responsible for all taxes and upkeep.

The property passes to Oxford University when your life estate ends.

Benefits

  • You receive gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of the appraised value of your property.
  • You can terminate your life estate at any time and take an additional income tax deduction.
  • You can have the satisfaction of making a significant gift now that benefits Oxford University later.
