How do you change the name on a deed from a deceased parent to your name?

If the parent dies with a will, the estate must clear probate, first, which could take time and money. After the Probate is cleared then a Quit Claim Deed from the personal representative of the estate to the rightful benificary of the will. can be filed in the County Clerks office, the house is then transferred. However, the benificary will be responsible for the increased value of the home. If the parent died with a Revocable Livng Trust and the house was properly titled in the trust's name , the the successor trustee would transfer the house via a Quit Claim Deed. This is of minimum costs (the preperation of the deed and the County recorder's filing fee.) And with the Trust there is no monies for the benificaries to pay for the property value increase.
