When the owner of land registered under sections 508A.01 to 508A.85, or of any estate or interest in it, dies, having devised the same by will, the persons entitled to it may file with the registrar a certified copy of the will and the personal representative's deed of distribution together with any order of distribution, if there is one, or certified copy of any final decree, if there is one, assigning it. The registrar shall then cancel the CPT issued to the testator and issue a new CPT to the persons designated. When the owner of land registered under sections 508A.01 to 508A.85, or of any estate or interest therein, dies, not having devised it, the persons entitled to it by law may file with the registrar the personal representative's deed of distribution together with a certified copy of any order of distribution, if there be one, or a certified copy of any final decree of the court assigning it. The registrar shall then cancel the CPT issued to the intestate and issue a new CPT to the persons entitled to it. Unless restricted by letters of testamentary or letters of administration, a personal representative may sell, convey, or mortgage land registered under sections 508A.01 to 508A.85 in the same manner as if the land were registered in the representative's name. The personal representative shall first file with the registrar a certified copy of any will of the decedent and a certified copy of the representative's letters.
