Transferring New York Real Property with an Administrator's Deed

Administrator's deeds are used to transfer title to real property when the owner died intestate (without a last will and testament).

The Surrogate's Court appoints an administrator to distribute the deceased individual's estate according to the rules set out in section 4-1.1of New York's Estates, Powers, and Trusts Law (EPT). The surrogate (the judge managing the case) issues documents called letters of administration, authorizing the administrator to begin his/her duties. If the estate includes real property, those duties could include using an administrator's deed to sell it.

Administrator's deeds contain the same information as warranty or quitclaim deeds, but they also include details about the administrator and the deceased owner. The administrator acts as the grantor on the deed, and his/her signature must be notarized. Some cases may require a witness to sign the deed in front of the notary, too. Note that at sections 309-a and 309-b, New York's Real Property Law (RPP) sets out specific notary statements based on whether the deed is signed inside or outside the state.

In addition to the standard state and local forms that accompany deeds submitted for recording, administrators might need to attach letters of administration from the Surrogate's Court, certified copies of the decedent's death certificate, and other supporting documentation as appropriate. Depending on the circumstances, the sale might also require court approval.

Probate procedures can be complicated, and each situation is unique. Seek assistance from an attorney or from the surrogate responsible for the case with any questions about this process.

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

The form was very easy to use and the sample tool you had was very helpful. the only problem i had was saving the document and then trying to find it later. I finally was able to figure out how to save it. but i still cannot find the saved document on my computer. Luckily i printed it before i closed it and did not need to make any changes.

I tried to do it myself by copying an old deed and ended up with a bunch of headaches (expensive ones) wish I would have used these documents first. Live and learn.

Fonts for all fields are not the same. Collin County has a specified size it wants in all fields. Other than that every thing was fine.

Product was ok; except in divorce cases there are usually two grantors - your form had only one signature and notary line for a grantor on the Quitclaim deed.
