Administrator Deed for Real Estate Located in Mississippi
An administrator's deed is a fiduciary instrument used in probate proceedings to convey property from an estate. An administrator is a personal representative appointed by the Chancery Court when the decedent dies intestate (without a will), or a testate decedent does not name an executor of his/her will (or the named executor cannot or will not serve).
The administrator's deed under Miss. Code Ann. 89-1-67 quitclaims the grantor's title to a purchaser. In addition to meeting the form and content requirements for standard transfers of real property, administrator's deeds contain pertinent information about the estate, including the source of the administrator's authority to sell.
Use an administrator's deed to convey title to the decedent's real property pursuant to a decree of the Chancery Court following petition for sale. The administrator may need to sell real property when the decedent's personal property is insufficient to pay the estate's outstanding debts, or when the sale is in the best interest of the distributees, as determined by the Court.
The probate process can be complicated, so contact an attorney with questions about administrator's deeds or any other issue related to probate in Mississippi.
