    How to transfer a deed upon death - with a will

    I have a question about how to transfer a deed upon the death of an individual who had a will. My great aunt died, leaving me her real property. No one is contesting the will, nor would they - we have been living there for years and all of the family knew 20+ years ago that we were to inherit the home. In any case, now that my great aunt has passed away and I have submitted the papers to probate the will, how do I go about transferring the deed into my name?

    Thanks so much in advance for your help!

    That's 100% irrelevant. It's what the will says that counts.

    Are you the executor?

    Did you receive papers from the court acknowledging you as representative of  the estate?

    If you did, then those papers give you the power to sign a deed for the estate as grantor to you as grantee, and then record the deed. You might have to record your court papers along with the deed to support your authority to do the transfer but I don't know that for sure.

    If somebody else in the family is the executor it's up to that person to do the transfer of ownership from the estate to you.
