My mother recently died intestate in Michigan. I've been appointed personal representative. Her estate consists primarily of her house and car. My two sisters and I plan to hold onto the house, so we need to deed it from the estate to us. Can I just record a quit claim deed from the estate to us? If yes, is there special terminology for inherited transfer or can I use a standard form? It appears to be customary to put $10 for the exchange for parents to kids, but would we do that from estate to kids? We haven't yet decided on joint tenants vs. in common-- there are reasonable arguments for both. We get along well, and should have no trouble coming to agreement either way.also- the house is paid for and she died with essentially no debt, so dealing with creditors or banks is not an issue. Informal probate has already been opened, and the attorney I talked to didn't see a problem for me to handle this without a probate attorney.
