If The Seller Of a Property Recently Passed Away, What Are The Typical Requirements For Funds To be Released To The Estate?

Our title insurance underwriter, Stewart Title Guarantee Company, will require a copy of the deceased seller’s death certificate.

The Executor/Executrix of the Estate may choose one of the three options below, regarding disbursing Estate funds:


  • A corporate surety bond can be obtained covering the open estate, naming Stewart Title Guaranty Company as loss payee, which must be approved prior to closing in the amount of $(net proceeds) and an Indemnity Agreement would need to executed;
  • A nonrefundable Extra-hazardous risk premium can be paid to Stewart Title Guaranty Company, in the amount of $2.00 per $1,000 of the SALES PRICE and an Indemnity Agreement would need to executed.
  • Rocket Title could escrow 100% of the net proceeds of the sale for a period of one year from the date of death of the deceased and an Indemnity Agreement would need to executed.
If I am Unavailable On The Day of Closing What Are My Options?

Rocket Title offers clients three convenient options for document notarization:

POA Preparation: Our attorney prepares a Specific Power of Attorney, allowing clients to appoint someone to sign documents. Clients take the POA to a local notary, with the cost added to the closing disclosure. We provide FedEx assistance.

Mobile Notary: We find a local mobile notary, coordinating signing and adding the fee to the closing disclosure.

FedEx Delivery: If you have documents early, we send them. After notarization, return the originals with FedEx assistance. Note: Notarizations outside Rocket Title require valid contact info.

Does The Buyer And Seller Need To Sign Their Documents Together, Simultaneously?

No, buyers and sellers typically don’t sign their documents together in the same office. Additionally, if the closing documents are signed on different dates, the buyer’s signed documents must be signed on the same day or a date after the seller’s signed documents. It is common for the buyer and seller to use different title companies or closing attorney’s.

In cases where repairs can’t be finished before closing, we offer three solutions:
