Kentucky Executor Deed

An executor's deed is a fiduciary instrument used in estate administration to transfer real property pursuant to the terms of a will and/or laws of descent. An executor is a personal representative who is named in a decedent's will to administer the decedent's estate.

Use an executor's deed to convey interest in real property to a grantee with a special warranty. This type of warranty affirms that, while the grantor/executor 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, executor's deeds also include details about the decedent's probate case. A court order for sale is required before a transfer can be made, unless the decedent's will specifies a power of sale. Supporting documentation, such as an affidavit of real property transfer under KRS 382.135(4), is required before an executor can record the deed in the office of the county clerk.

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

Dennis E. said: Easy to complete form. Examples were very helpful in using correct verbiage for form. Also way less expensive than the $500 an attorney wanted to charge me for doing the very same thing!!!

Matt G. said: The process went smoothly and gave me what I needed. As an improvement, I would recommend that deeds.com sends an email when there is a new message in the portal. I didn't get any updates and had to log in to track progress each time.

Jerri S. said: Very helpful. Print out go to court house spent less then 15 minutes there and done! Thanks will use again.

Reply from Staff: Thank you Jerri, we appreciate your feedback.


James J. said: The form itself was very good and easy to use. The only problem I had was the Sample they provided. Using a different name in every spot doesnt help determine what goes where. Using "Theodore Rockafeller" as Lien Claimant in one spot and Jebediah Finklestein in another then Harvey Johnson in the last spot is confusing if you really need a helpful sample.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback James. We will have staff review the completed example to see if we can make it more helpful. Have a great day!
