Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney. I will do whatever I can to answer your question and provide you excellent service.
My condolences for your loss.
Unfortunately, a copy of a deed is not valid for conveyance or recording.
If you can not locate the original deed then the property is still part of your father's estate and will need to go through the probate process to transfer ownership.
I hope this is helpful. If you have any follow up questions feel free to post them. It is never a problem.
Thank you.
Loren
