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.

Consult a lawyer with questions about Maine personal representative's deeds or with other inquiries related to the probate process.

Product was ok; except in divorce cases there are usually two grantors - your form had only one signature and notary line for a grantor on the Quitclaim deed.

I am a real estate attorney in CA. These Wyoming model deeds look too basic and barely adequate: no usual name and address at the top for tax statements and who recorded it. Some old fashioned legalese that only obfuscates. I won't use them. Your background info was good though.

How about a single button zip download of the files displayed instead of downloading them one at a time?

I am generally pleased with your products. However, I found it difficult to return to the package after accessing one selected document. One other comment: Your Trustee's Deed package should include a Certificate of Trust form.

Excellent service! Quick and much easier than having to do everything through the mail. The agent was quick to answer questions and everything was processed and submitted from Deeds.com within a couple of hours. Will definitely use again if the need arises.
