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.

Unless empowered in the decedent's will, a personal representative (PR) may not sell property from the estate without the court's authorization (62-3-711(b)). The procedures for selling real property in probate are outlined at 62-3-1301 et seq., and are "the only procedure for the sale of lands by the court, except where the will of the decedent authorizes to the contrary" (62-3-1301). A PR may be required to sell real property to pay claims on the estate or for other expenses in the course of administration.

The process for a sale of realty involves filing inventory and appraisement with the court, submitting a petition for the sale of property, filing a lis pendens (a notice that the property is the subject of litigation) and serving summonses, hearing the petition, and the court issuing an order for either private or public sale.

To transfer title following a sale, the PR executes a deed. A PR deed follows the statutory form of conveyances in South Carolina, under S.C. Code 27-7-10. When recorded, the deed transfers an estate in fee simple to the grantee with full warranties of title.

A purchaser receiving a deed from a PR "takes title to the real property free of rights of any heirs or devisees or other interested person in the estate and incurs no personal liability to the estate or to any heir or devisee or other interested person in the estate" regardless of whether such sale was proper (62-3-910(B)). Purchasers dealing with personal representatives are also protected under 62-3-714, provided the estate is not administered under Part 5 of the Probate Code (estates in mediation; see 62-3-501 et seq.). Buyers may request a short certificate from the PR to determine whether the estate is under Part 5 administration.

The deed must meet all state and local requirements for documents affecting title to real property. The PR signs the deed 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 personal representative's deeds in South Carolina, as each situation is unique.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

Found the service useful and straightforward. The only recommendation would be to send an e-mail notification to the request or when their package is ready for download. Mine, apparently, was ready within and hour or so after placing the request but did not go back onto the site until a day later to find it was ready.

Easy fill in the blanks form. Just FYI make sure you have a copy of whatever deed you are changing and the tax records. You will want the language to be identical.

Deeds.com made it so easy to file my paper work with the county. It saved me half a days travel and cost me about a tank of gas. This service was well worth the saved travel time and energy. I would highly recommend this service to other individuals. The other companies I spoke with only service law firms, title companies & banks etc. Thanks deed.com, I'll be back and will refer all my friends too.
