No. Nothing to cancel, no memberships, no recurring fees.

In Colorado, the person approved or appointed by the probate court to administer a decedent's estate is called a personal representative. The personal representative has a fiduciary duty to settle the decedent's estate, including devising real property to rightful heirs or distributing real property pursuant to the laws of intestate succession set forth in the Colorado Probate Code.

Use the personal representative's deed of distribution to transfer real property to a devisee (someone designated in a will to receive the decedent's property) or an heir (a person, including the surviving spouse, entitled under statutes of intestate succession to receive the decedent's property).

The personal representative's deed does not warrant against title defects preceding the appointment of the personal representative.

Additional documents, including letters of administration or letters testamentary, may be required. Consult an attorney with questions regarding the probate process and personal representative's deeds in Colorado.

Very easy to use and no hidden costs. You get to download whatever you need and can save it and even reuse it. So it's like having your own library of form that you pay for once. They even give you more related forms than you ask for and it turned out we needed some if those forms as well. The forms meet what our county requires for margins in records and so on. So I will use deeds.com again when I need a different kind of legal form.

It just a little disconcerting that I was not able to preview any of the forms prior to purchasing them. Thank goodness they were the correct forms I needed. I would suggest being able to at least make the picture of the forms a little larger or give the capability to zoom in.
