Welcome and thank you for your question. What State does your question pertain to?

Can you provide the link where the form was posted and please let me know the questions you have with regard to the assent.

"A deed of assent is sometimes used to convey real property to heir(s) who are entitled to the property under a decedent’s will. This type of deed constitutes the executor’s agreement or “assent” to the transfer of the property to the heir(s), after all debts of the decedent have been paid. Once the heir(s) own the property, they are free to deal with it as they choose. This type of deed doesn't contain warranties of title, it conveys only such title as the decedent held while still alive." http://definitions.uslegal.com/d/deed-of-assent/

Georgia and question is is this the right form? I am transferring the property to beneficiaries per the will. Do I take out the line about heirs at law? For the description portion are they just asking for the address or something else? Do I need to include any language from the will on the form, if so I do not see a spot for it? I need to file it by the end of today if possible. Thanks.

Let me put together some information to assist you.

"+ Deed of Assent

This type of Deed is executed by the Executor when the transfer is made per specific instruction contained the Last Will and Testament of a deceased person. Under Georgia law, where there is a specific devise of real property found in the Will, a Deed of Assent merely acknowledges the passage of title to the party named in the Will.
All Deeds in this category are essentially a type of Quitclaim Deed since they merely convey property that is in an estate, without general warranties of title." https://georgiatitle.com/Buyer-Property-Guidance/Georgia-Deeds-Mortgages/index.html#EstateDeeds

"A deed of assent is an aspect of probate law necessary to transfer a property from the name of a deceased person to the intended heir. The executor of the will, who handles the dispersal of the deceased person's property and belongings, agrees to sign over the property into the heir's name."

Do you think you will be able to answer in enough time for me to file before 5pEST today?
Real Estate Lawyer: Attyadvisor, Attorney replied 1 year ago

It is very similar to quit claim deed. Are we looking at the same form? the link I provided above?

For the description portion are they just asking for the address or something else? Do I need to include any language from the will on the form,

You would write in a legal description of the property to be transferred. Do you have a copy of the prior deed? This would contain the legal description.

Do I take out the line about heirs at law? I am not sure I understand this question you would be naming the person(s) you are conveying the property to. Which County is the property located in as each recorder's office can assist?

a simpler question may be is the deed of assent the same as an executor's deed? if so I can take it from there. Yes basically. Let me provide a better link. The legal description is what the recorder is looking for. I always state the property is " commonly known as" and write the street address and then add the legal description under the "words more particularly described as" Or Legal Description : Lot 12 in..... Give me one moment to provide you with a form.
