Georgia Executor Deed

When people create their wills, they generally name one or more individuals to supervise the distribution of their assets. Georgia customarily uses the term "personal representative" to refer to both executors and administrators, but get more specific when it comes to conveying title to real estate. An executor is a personal representative designated in a will to manage a testate decedent's estate; an administrator is appointed by the probate court, and can be involved in either testate or intestate (without a will) processes.

During probate, the court may direct an executor to sell real property pursuant to the terms of the decedent's will, to pay the estate's debts, or to consolidate the decedent's estate for devise among multiple beneficiaries. The named personal representative uses an executor's deed to transfer real property from a testate estate. The executor's deed contains all the information required for a standard conveyance, such as a quitclaim or warranty deed, but also includes relevant details about the decedent and the probate case.

To transfer title to a buyer, record the completed executor's deed, along with any necessary supporting documents, with the real property records of the appropriate county.

Consult an attorney with questions about the executor's deed, or with any other issues related to probate in Georgia.

FRANK O. said: Easy to download and use the forms, however two forms needed for my county recording were not included.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback Frank. We'll look into finding and including the additional supplemental documents. Sometimes supplemental documents have to be generated by the county's system, specific to the transaction.


Cherene K. said: The process was easy and reasonable. My only problem was that, when I filled out my form on the computer, the writing I did overlapped with the pre-written words on the form, so that I had to end up doing it by hand. I've used DEEDS before and have not had that problem.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback Cherene. We've emailed you for some followup regarding the issue you reported.


Cathleen H. said: The pdf form is good; however, the input boxes merge into the line above so the text is hard to read when complete. I added a return before entering my data and this solved the problem.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback Cathleen. We will have staff take a look at the document for issues with the text fields. Have a great day!
