What is the South Carolina Personal Representative Deed of Distribution?

In South Carolina, title to a decedent's real property devolves at death to the decedent's heirs (intestate estates) and devisees (testate estates) (S.C. Code 62-3-101). Though title passes by operation of law, the estate is still subject to administration in probate. Probate is the legal process of settling the decedent's estate and distributing assets to those entitled to receive it. A PR may not make distribution of the estate without first obtaining permission from the court.

The personal representative (PR) of the estate executes a deed of distribution following an order for distribution from the court to distribute real property from a decedent's estate. The deed of distribution (Form 400ES) evidences the legal succession of title of the decedent's interest in real property and releases the PR's powers over the subject property.

The deed, given under 62-3-907, 62-3-908 is "conclusive evidence that the distributee has succeeded to the interest of the estate...against all persons interested in the estate" (62-3-908).

Apart from meeting all state and local standards for documents affecting title to real property, the deed of distribution must identify the reason for the transfer (i.e., a will, laws of intestacy, a family agreement, disclaimer, or order), and name each beneficiary and the percent of the decedent's interest in the subject property he or she is inheriting.

The deed of distribution is signed by the acting PR in the presence of a notary public and two witnesses before recording in the Register of Deeds' office of the county where the subject property is situated. A certified copy should be delivered to the probate court.

Consult a lawyer with questions regarding probate and deeds of distribution in South Carolina, as each situation is unique.

Review: LOVE THIS!! I am a REALTORand from time to time I have had to take documents for filing. I'm so glad I invested some time online researching eFiling services. The first few search results that populated required an expensive annual or monthly subscription. Luckily I continued to scroll and found Deeds.com. No annual or monthly subscription required. Just pay per use. I uploaded a ROL late one night and Deed.com had it eFiled the very next morning!!! They keep you updated throughout the process via email notifications which you click on the link provided in the email that directs you to your online portal to view the status and once your documents have been filed you can immediately download the filed of record documents including the receipt from the county in which the documents were filed. SO SIMPLE, CONVENIENT, & QUICK-THANK YOU DEEDS.com!!!
