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.

Courtney V. said: I didn't have a chance to judge your services because I received a message saying that my requested title could not be searched. I will say, the website is easy to navigate. I'm not sure how many who use these services are laymen, but I would suggest adding a detailed explanation of each service. I had to Google the difference between each type of title search, but I might just be more uninformed than the average person, or I just didn't see it on your website

Alan K. said: The instructions and example for filling out the form were very clear and detailed making the whole process fairly easy. An attorney I talked to wanted $200 to fill out this simple form. I haven't tried to file it yet but I will let you know if there are any issues. Really a great deal. $20 vs $200.
