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.

Review: As promised, my forms were immediately ready for download. The forms were exactly what i wanted. I couldnt be happier and i cant even guess how much money i saved. They were even formatted to the exact font, spacing and margin used by my county. It is obvious a lot of time and effort was put into the preparation of these documents. They are absolutely perfect. Check it out, you wont be disappointed and the price is much less than i expected. Don caldwell

Review: The process for receiving the quitclaim document worked well. I couldn't use the document. If I had been able to view the document before I had to pay for it, I would have known, but that isn't how your process works. However, that's the only snag I found. Otherwise the process for paying and downloading the document worked well. Thank you.

Reply from Staff on August 7th, 2020

Thank you for your feedback Beverly. We certainly do not want you to pay for something you are unable to use. To that end we have canceled your order and refunded your payment. We do hope that you find something more suitable to your needs. Have a wonderful day.

Review: This was the easiest, quickest, most understandable way I've seen yet to retrieve deeds from various counties. The government websites are "clunky" and each one seems different than the other. I like this service and will use them again in the future. NANCY

Review: The process sure was easy and fast. Not sure why a rep would question why I am requesting an exhibit page on the Deed when that's a common practice here in AZ. They recorded it the way I sent it so all good.
