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.

Ronald C. said: My goal was to find the Covenant, Conditions, and Restrictions for my HOA. From what I can read, these documents should be attached to our Deed (single family, patio home in New Hanover County). I am not sure if I have a copy of my Deed. I would need to check my Safe Deposit Box. Unfortunately, I was not successful at finding these documents from your Website. If you can help me find them, I would appreciate that.
Reply from Staff: It is most common to obtain a copy of CC&Rs directly from the HOA. Alternatively, they are also usually a matter of public record recorded with the local recorder and you can obtain a copy there.
