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)

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

Deeds.com served my needs perfectly providing a form for a very reasonable price. Every other site was double or more. The form was easy to complete and I like that I can access it if I need to make changes. I had contacted a paralegal to prepare this form for me and she quoted $150. I saved time and money with Deeds.com.

This is my first time and your service appears to be very user-friendly; however, since I am new to this service, I'm not sure if my e-filings were received as I've not heard anything back nor have I received any type of confirmation of receipt.

The Quitclaim deed form was fine. Unfortunately, all I wanted to accomplish was to transfer property held in my name into my trust, but I could not any wording on the information you provided on how to accomplish this. It was not a sale, just a transfer from me to me as trustee.
