Florida Personal Representative Deed (Intestate)

Florida Personal Representative's Distributive Deed (intestate)

This form is for use by the personal representative of an individual who died without a will.

Wills, or last wills and testaments, are estate planning documents used to organize and record how people wish to distribute their assets after death. If someone dies without executing and filing a will, their estate is identified as "intestate."

Without a will to manage this distribution, a personal representative is designated by the county Circuit Court. Because the personal representative in such situations is appointed, sales of assets are generally authorized by the court handling the probate case.

Real estate is a common asset, and with proper approval, a personal representative's distributive deed can be used if the personal representative is called upon to sell the property. These instruments are useful because they collect the relevant details about the transfer and the deceased owner into one document.

Personal representative's distributive deeds are used to transfer ownership of real property from an intestate estate. Each situation is unique, however, so contact an attorney with specific questions or for complex cases.

A. S. said: First, I am glad that you gave a blank copy, an example copy, and a 'guide'. It made it much easier to do. Overall I was very happy with your products and organization... however, things got pretty confusing and I have a pretty 'serious' law background in Real Estate and Civil law. With that said, I spent about 10+ hours getting my work done, using the Deed of Trust and Promissory note from you and there were a few problems: First, it would be FANTASTIC if you actually aligned your guide to actually match the Deed or Promissory Note. What I mean is that if the Deed says 'section (E)' then your guide shouldn't be 'randomly' numbered as 1,2,3, for advice/instructions, but should EXACTLY match 'section (E)'. Some places you have to 'hunt' for what you are looking for, and if you did it based on my suggestion, you wouldn't need to 'hunt' and it would avoid confusion. 2nd: This one really 'hurt'... you had something called the 'Deed of Trust Master Form' yet you had basically no information on what it was or how to use it. The only information you had was a small section at the top of the 'Short Form Deed of Trust Guide'. Holy Cow, was that 'section' super confusing. I still don't know if I did it correctly, but your guide says only put a return address on it and leave the rest of the 16 or so page Deed of Trust beneath it blank... and then include your 'Deed of Trust' (I had to assume the short form deed that I had just created) as part of it. I had to assume that I had to print off the entire 17 page or so title page and blank deed. I also had to assume that the promissory note was supposed to be EXHIBIT A or B on the Short Form Deed. It would be great if someone would take a serious look at that short section in your 'Short Form Deed of Trust Guide' and realize that those of us using your products are seriously turning this into a county clerk to file and that most of us, probably already have a property that has an existing Deed... or at least can find one in the county records if necessary... and make sure that you make a distinction between the Deed for the property that already exists, versus the Deed of Trust and Promissory note that we are trying to file. Thanks.
