11750. (a) The personal representative is responsible for
distribution of the property in the estate in compliance with the
terms of the court order for distribution.
(b) A distributee may demand, sue for, and recover from the
personal representative or any person in possession, property to
which the distributee is entitled.
(c) A distribution of property made in compliance with the terms
of the court order for distribution is valid as to a person acting in
good faith and for a valuable consideration.
11751. The personal representative shall obtain the receipt of the
distributee for property in the estate distributed by the personal
representative. In the case of real property, the personal
representative shall record the court order for distribution or the
personal representative's deed or both in the county in which the
real property is located. Recordation of the order or deed is deemed
to be a receipt of the distributee for the property.
11752. If personal property in the possession of a distributee is
subject to possession by the distributee for life only, the personal
representative shall demand an inventory of the property from the
distributee. On receipt, the personal representative shall file the
inventory with the court and deliver a copy to any distributee of the
11753. (a) Distribution in compliance with the court order entitles
the personal representative to a full discharge with respect to
property included in the order.
(b) The personal representative shall, before or at the time of
the petition for discharge, file receipts for all property in the
estate. In the case of real property, the personal representative
shall file a statement that identifies the date and place of the
recording and other appropriate recording information for the court
order for distribution or the personal representative's deed.
(c) The court may excuse the filing of a receipt on a showing that
the personal representative is unable, after reasonable effort, to
obtain a receipt and that the property has been delivered to or is in
the possession of the distributee.
11754. Expenses of administration of the estate shall include
reasonable storage, delivery, and shipping costs for distribution of
tangible personal property to a distributee.
