Deed of Distribution

A Deed of Distribution is a legal document used to transfer ownership of a deceased person's Assets to their Heirs or Beneficiaries if the deceased died without a Last Will and Testament, or if it did not provide sufficient information for how to distribute assets.

The document outlines the details of how to distribute the deceased's assets, including any real estate, personal property, and financial assets.

To create a deed of distribution, the Executor of the Estate must file a petition in Probate Court to request permission to distribute the assets.

Also known as an Administrator's Deed, distribution deed, deed of transfer, or deed of conveyance.
