Missouri Personal Representative Deed of Distribution

The laws governing Missouri probate proceedings are codified at Chapters 472-475 of the Missouri Revised Statutes.

The personal representative's deed of distribution is a fiduciary instrument recorded as evidence that a distributee has succeeded to the decedent's interest in real property. A personal representative, who may alternately be referred to as either an executor or an administrator, is the person appointed by the Probate Division of the Circuit Court to manage the decedent's estate.

Use a deed of distribution to quitclaim the decedent's interest in real estate. By operation of law, the decedent's heirs automatically succeed to the decedent's interest, but a deed of distribution is recorded alongside the decedent's will, if applicable, to maintain an accurate chain of title. The PR's deed must meet all state and local standards for content and format. It also makes reference to the deceased owner and the probate case, and might require supporting documents such as an official copy of the death certificate.

Consult an attorney licensed in the State of Missouri with questions about personal representative's deeds or any other issue related to probate.

STANLEY F. said: Forms were spot on and able to save over $100 by not going to an attorney to complete the same documents. There were templates on how forms are supposed to be completed. You just need a notary to sign.

Sherilynne P. said: I am delighted with the form. I just had to go through so much time and expense in order to use it. First, from your site I downloaded Adobe Acrobat. It totally compromised my computer. I had to get a computer expert to walk me through deleting adobe, and put a substitute on in order to use the form. That was an expense of $60.00. Then after that I still had a hard time getting the program to work, as the substitute program would not accept my e-mail address and I finally had to get someone on line to help me access that. I found it was a $$30.00 charge for the substitute. After fighting these lovely roadblocks, I was finally able to fill in the only form I needed and print it off. Took me two days to accomplish that. Why on earth do you offer adobe when it can compromise a computer so badly? Dealing with my husbands death and then having to deal with this, just one of many deterrents, well let's put it this way, it did not make my two days.
