Probate is the legal process of settling a decedent's (deceased person's) estate. An administrator is the personal representative appointed by the clerk of superior court to administer a decedent's estate.

When the estate's assets are not sufficient to pay debts, the administrator may need to petition the superior court where the estate is open to obtain an order to sell the decedent's real property. In North Carolina, title to real property vests in the decedent's heirs upon death, and a special proceeding is required to bring the property into the estate. An administrator may not sell realty without the court's permission.

The beneficiary and administrator's deed is an instrument executed by a decedent's heirs and joined by the administrator of the estate to convey an interest in real property from an intestate estate (so called when the decedent dies without a will, or does not name an executor of the estate) to a purchaser.

When the estate is still open in probate, the administrator joins in the deed consenting to the sale of the real property described within as required by N.C.G.S. 28A-17-12. By signing the deed, the administrator waives the possibility of opening a special proceeding to bring the property back into the estate later.

Heirs must execute the deed for a valid transfer. The deed lists all heirs and their marital status; spouses of heirs must join in signing the deed to release homestead rights under North Carolina law. Because title is legally vested in them, the executing heirs may make warranties of title, but the administrator typically does not. Any warranty language included in the deed is binding on the heirs.

Recitals of a beneficiary and administrator's deed include a statement that the decedent died intestate and information regarding the opened estate, including the decedent's date of death, the county of probate, and the file number assigned to the estate by the clerk of superior court. In addition, the deed states that the administrator named within is qualified to administer the estate and joins to evidence consent to the sale, and includes the date of first notice to creditors.

A lawful deed in North Carolina states the consideration made for the transfer of title, contains an accurate legal description of the subject parcel and recites the grantor's source of title. When properly executed and recorded, the beneficiary and administrator's deed vests title to the within-described property in the named grantee(s). Any restrictions to the transfer should be noted in the body of the deed.

Both the heirs' signatures and the administrator's signature must be acknowledged in the presence of a notarial official before the deed can be recorded in the county where the subject property is located. For a valid deed, the signatures of heirs and their spouses, when applicable, must be present. An affidavit of consideration or value may be required.

Consult an attorney licensed in the State of North Carolina with questions regarding beneficiary and administrator's deeds, as each situation is unique.

My county accessors office recommended this site. My Uncle passed away and did not leave a will and I needed to have his deed transferred into my name. I was able to do it using the sample Deeds.com provided. I used it as a guide to fill out the paperwork that I printed off of the Deeds.com site. I had no problem when I went to the county and turned in the paperwork and the clerk said everything looked great.

Quick and easy to use. I was able to download the Transfer on Death Deed form to my computer so that I can read through and fill them out at a later time. That made it convenient and "no pressure". The complimentary guide and completed example that came with the form was also very helpful.

I filled out the Xfer on Death Deed and turned it in to the County Recorder - everything went well. I did NOT like the Huge Print over like a stamp of "DEEDS.COM" on some of the material - it just made it hard to read.

When I found this website, I was confused and hesitant to use this website to submit paperwork that needed to be submitted to the Clerks of Courts in Miami. I am glad I decided to go through with it. It was the easiest process I have encountered even with working with the City. Highly recommend as it is super easy to use and received that everything was approved and recorded in two working days. Thank you so much for bringing my stress level lower as many uncertainties of how to process my paperwork. Will use it again to finish my project as the City continues to not accept walk ins. Thank you so much.

Not too hard to do, I did get it checked out by an attorney after I completed it just to be safe. He said it was fine, made no changes.
