Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

A deed of distribution is used when heirship of the property cannot be determined from the will and it is filled out by the trustee to transfer the property. Otherwise, the fastest way to transfer the property is a quit claim deed. These deeds must be prepared by a local attorney in SC and should not be done without a local attorney. The attorney has to review the prior deeds and any heirship documents to make sure they are correctly transferring the property.
