The Personal Representative's Deed of Distribution provides essential information about the probate estate and the property transfer in one document.
When a person dies, someone must take responsibility for distributing the remaining assets according to the instructions set out in the decedent's will (if there is one), while also following state and local laws. This person is often known as an executor or an administrator of the estate. Arizona, however, identifies the individual who accepts that fiduciary duty as a personal representative.
One common task involves transferring title on the decedent's real estate. Deeds used for this purpose must meet the same state and local requirements as warranty or quitclaim deeds. In addition, they include other details, such as facts about the deceased property owner, the probate case, and anything else deemed necessary by the situation.
Note that these deeds may need to be recorded with the probate registrar/clerk of superior court as well as the county recording office. Consult with a legal professional who is involved in managing the specific probate case to ensure that all recording and notice requirements are met.
Personal representative's deeds of distribution are useful for both testate (with a will) and intestate (without a will) estates. Each case is unique, though, so contact an attorney with specific questions or for complex circumstances.
