It depends. If the case is a summary administration, then the the Judge will sign an order of summary administration in which the ownership of the property is passed to the beneficiaries listed in the order of summary administration. If, on the other hand, the case is a formal administration case, then it will depend on whether it is a homestead property or not. If it is homestead, your probate attorney will need to file a motion to determine homestead. Then, the judge will sign an order determining homestead, and the property will be transferred. If it is not a homestead property, the personal representative, after creditor claims have been handled, will sign a personal representative’s deed transferring the property.
