What’s the background?
Probate is the legal process of administering a deceased person’s estate. This involves identifying and gathering the person’s assets, paying any debts, taxes and other expenses they owe, and then distributing their remaining assets to their heirs. Probate also includes settling any disputes that may arise during this process. It can be a long and complicated process, but it’s one that needs to be carried out in order to ensure that the deceased person’s wishes are followed.
What happened to make these changes?
Probate is a legal process required by law to distribute the assets of an estate, either through a will or an intestacy. When it comes to real estate, probate is usually required in order to transfer the property title from the decedent’s name into the name of his/her beneficiaries. This process can take some time and involve navigating various court documents and filing fees. In addition, there are often additional requirements for estates that include real estate such as appraisals or liens that need to be cleared before the sale can go through. Understanding probate procedures and requirements can be complicated and navigating the paperwork involved with real estate transfers during probate can be daunting. That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced realtor who understands both probate law and local market trends when dealing with the sale of a home during this process.
