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

An administrator's deed is a fiduciary instrument used in estate administration to transfer real property pursuant to laws of intestate succession. An administrator is a personal representative selected by the probate court to administer a decedent's intestate estate.

Use an administrator's deed to convey interest in real property to a grantee with a special warranty. This type of warranty affirms that, while the grantor/administrator controlled the property, she never acted in a way to change the status of the title.

In addition to meeting state and local standards for real estate deeds, administrator's deeds also include details about the decedent's probate case. A court order for sale is required before a transfer can be made. Supporting documentation, such as an affidavit of real property transfer under KRS 382.135(4), is required before an administrator can record the deed in the office of the county clerk.

Contact a lawyer with questions about Kentucky administrator's deeds or other inquiries related to probate.

loved the ease of use for the forms.
went on line to find out about Adobe Reader, too. Had a test to see if I had it. Took few seconds. Then on to ordering and downloading which took only 5 minutes for the three forms I wanted.
Thanks, Katie Anderson
