Maine Personal Representative Deed of Distribution Testate

Personal Representative Deed of Distribution Testate for Real Estate Located in Maine

A personal representative of a testate estate is someone named in the decedent's will to administer the estate.

The personal representative's (PR) deed of distribution for a testate estate, under 33 M.R.S. 775-3-B, is a fiduciary instrument used to convey real property from an estate to a successor in interest entitled to the distribution, as set forth in the decedent's will. The PR deed conveys interest without any implied covenants of title (33 M.R.S. 771).

In addition to meeting the standard content requirements for real estate conveyancing documents, PR deeds must reference information regarding the relevant probate case. Deeds of distribution are exempt from real estate transfer taxes in Maine.
