What is the West Virginia Personal Representative Deed

A personal representative is the fiduciary appointed to administer a decedent's estate in probate. When the decedent dies with a will, the personal representative is the executor named in the will, or, if no executor is named, a qualifying beneficiary. When the decedent dies intestate (without a will), the personal representative selected by the court is called the administrator.

In the course of estate settlement, a personal representative may be required to execute and record a deed conveying real property from the estate following a sale. A decedent may designate in their will the specific real estate to be sold, or an estate's assets may be insufficient to pay its debts, and the personal representative may need to commence a suit in equity to subject the real estate to payment under W. Va. Code 44-8-7.

A fiduciary deed follows the statutory form of a deed under W. Va. Code 36-3-5. In addition, West Virginia requires a Declaration of Consideration or Value confirming the actual consideration paid or monetary value of the property being transferred (W. Va. Code 11-22-6).

Due to the nature of the fiduciary as a representative, a special warranty is typically appropriate. A covenant of special warranty means that the grantor promises to warrant and defend the property for the grantee against claims or demands of the grantor and persons acting by, through, or under him (W. Va. Code 36-4-3). This warranty is more limited than that of a general warranty deed because it does not extend prior to the time the grantor obtained title. In West Virginia, covenants run with the land, meaning they are also binding on any successor in title.

In addition to the statutory contents of a deed, personal representative's deeds contain information about the subject estate, such as the decedent's name and date of death, whether he or she left a will, the personal representative's name and his or her source of authority to sell the subject real estate, such as a testamentary power of sale under W. Va. Code 44-5A-3 or an order by the county commission.

The deed must be signed by the executor or administrator in the presence of a notary public before recording in the County Clerk's office for a valid transfer. The instrument should meet all requirements of form and content for documents relating to real property in West Virginia.

Consult a lawyer with questions about estate administration or personal representative's deeds in West Virginia.

This service is fantastic! Took a few tries to scan the document correctly, but their patience and quick turn around made this a far better experience than going to the County myself.

The service was great but after I did all my work and uploaded the documents they canceled my stuff because the county they had on the list doesnt take/or have set up e-recording yet. It was a bit disappointing because thats the only reason I was on here is because it brought me here from that countys sight.
