Indiana Personal Representative's Deed for Conveyance

Authorized personal representatives can use this form when selling real property from a decedent's estate.

When we die, another person becomes responsible for managing the assets we leave behind. If we die testate (with a will), this person is called an executor. If we die intestate (without a will), or in other specific situations, the court supervising the probate estate appoints an administrator. Once the executor or administrator is in place, Indiana laws identify this individual as a "personal representative," or PR. See IC 29-1-1-3(23) for the list of titles included under this role.

The judge supervising the case gives confirmation of the personal representative's authority by issuing letters testamentary or letters of administration, as appropriate. Note that the PR must apply for the letters within five months of the decedent's death (IC 29-1-7-15.1(b)). Once in place, the PR gains access to the probate estate, defined as "property transferred at the death of a decedent under the decedent's will or under IC 29-1-2, in the case of a decedent dying intestate" IC 29-1-1-3(24).

One common task handled by the PR is transferring ownership of the decedent's real property. Indiana's statutes contain a form related to conveying this real estate (IC 29-1-7.5-3.6). In addition to the statutory requirement to provide relevant facts of the probate case, personal representative's deeds must meet all state and local standards for format and content.

Note that personal representative's deeds to not include warranties of title, so it makes sense for potential purchasers to consider a title search. This can reveal defects in the chain of title (ownership history), and may prevent potential issues in future transactions.

Depending on the circumstances, the PR might provide additional supporting documentation including a certified copy of the authorizing letter, death certificate, will, etc. Also, the transfer might require approval from the court or others with an interest in the estate or the property.

Navigating the complexities of a probate case can be overwhelming, but taking the time to ensure a valid transfer during active probate is much easier than trying to solve problems later on. Please contact an attorney or probate court officer with specific questions or for complex situations.

Forms are fine, but the inability to download a completed form is not. Nor is the ability to convert to another format. Everytime I went to download, the form erased. I didn't have a printer available, so everything I did was to waste.
