I have a small estate affidavit that has been approved by court order which transfers my deceased mother's property and real property to me. What is the procedure for having the deed transferred into my name on the real property (home)? The deed in my possession is in my deceased mother's name.
The court order is generally filed in the real estate records of the county in which the court is. Nothing further is needed. I Would add that unless the property is very inexpensive or you are an adult disabled child that it would be very unusual for a SEA to transfer title to non homestead property.

I agree with Mr. Geffen. Also change the name on the tax account.
Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services. My Avvo posts are based on limited information provided and are not intended as conclusive legal advice.
The other sttorneys have provided appropriate answers. If you hve used a small estates affidavit to show the transfer of rights, there will be no acutal deed issued in your name.
