Massachusetts Personal Representative’s Deed of Distribution

A deed of distribution is a fiduciary instrument executed by a personal representative (PR), who is appointed by the Probate and Family Court to administer a decedent's estate. Use a deed of distribution under G. L. c. 190B, 3-907 to distribute a decedent's real property to devisees under the decedent's will or to heirs when the decedent has died intestate.

A deed of distribution provides evidence of the distributee's title. It must meet the same standards for form and content as a standard deeds, but also requires information about the decedent. Depending on the situation, the PR might need to include additional supporting documentation.

Recorded in the Registry of Deeds in the county where the subject property is located, the deed brings the chain of title up to date after the decedent passes.

Consult a lawyer with questions about probate proceedings and deeds of distribution in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Tom D. said: I have one suggestion and couple of question I would think that most TOD's would be from married couples. It would be real helpful to have a example of the I(we) block for married couples. Why would I check or not check the "property is registered (torrents)" Do I need a notarized signature of the Grantee
