    Answered . Your summary is a little confusing. I assume that the POA is the beneficiary named in the Will to receive the property. The fact that she was POA is irrelevant. It is usually necessary for all probate assets to be distributed while the estate is still open, because the authority of the executor/personal representative usually terminates, once the estate is closed.

    It is possible that the deed has been signed and delivered to the register of deeds for recording, but has not yet been returned. This process can sometimes take several weeks, in Michigan.

    If the estate has been closed and the deed has not yet been prepared or signed, then I think you may need to consult with an attorney to determine how best to proceed.

    Answered . I agree with Mr. Frederick. Normally the remaining property of an estate passes to beneficiaries at the end of the administration. Not sure where the POA comes in unless the POA is serving on behalf of a disabled beneficiary.

    Hope this helps.
