Nebraska Personal Representative's Deed (Sale)

A personal representative's deed is a fiduciary instrument used to convey real property from an estate to a purchaser. The deed is named for the capacity of the executing party. A personal representative is the fiduciary appointed by the County Court to administer a decedent's estate in probate.

Use a personal representative's deed when a decedent's will include provisions for the sale of real property, pursuant to an order for sale under formal probate proceedings, or when administration of the estate necessitates. PR deeds typically recite the decedent's name and the case number assigned to the estate by the court, and expressly state that the grantor is executing the deed in a representative capacity. They must meet all requirements of form and content for documents pertaining to interest in real property in the State of Nebraska, including a complete legal description of the subject parcel. A Real Estate Transfer Form is required, along with the documentary stamp tax. Record the deed in the Register of Deeds office in the county where the real property is situated.
