Maine Personal Representative's Deed of Sale for a Testate Estate

The personal representative's (PR) deed of sale for a testate estate, under 33 M.R.S. 775-3-D, is a fiduciary instrument used to convey real property from an estate to a grantee (purchaser) when the decedent has died with a will. The PR deed conveys interest without any implied covenants of title (33 M.R.S. 771).

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

The personal representative must have a court order to sell real property, unless the terms of the decedent's will direct the sale. The PR may be required to give notice of the sale, unless the will waives this requirement.

In addition to meeting the standard content requirements for real estate conveyancing documents, PR deeds must reference information regarding the relevant probate case. Deeds are subject to transfer taxes in Maine, and require a real estate transfer tax form, unless a valid exemption is noted on the deed. File the deed at the appropriate county's Register of Deeds.

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

(Maine PRD Package includes form, guidelines, and completed example)

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

Quick and easy to use. I was able to download the Transfer on Death Deed form to my computer so that I can read through and fill them out at a later time. That made it convenient and "no pressure". The complimentary guide and completed example that came with the form was also very helpful.

The Quitclaim deed seems pretty simple However I wonder if I can fll out the paper as easily as it looks
I appreciate very much the sample and the direction for filling out the deed.
Now I am in the process of gathering document to fill out the deed and I think only when after everything done, I may have a clear idea how good the Quitclaim Deed is.
