A Little About Our Team – We Are…
WHAT IS PROBATE?
When someone who owned real estate dies, in order for the deemed rightful heirs to be given the title of the property, the heirs must go through a formal court process called probate. This completed process officially transfers the title to the heirs and gives them authority to legally sell/convey/transfer the real estate.
According to floridabar.org, the decedent’s assets are used first to pay the cost of the probate proceeding, then are used to pay the decedent’s funeral expenses, then the decedent’s outstanding debts, and the remainder is distributed to the decedent’s beneficiaries.
WHAT DOES PROBATE REAL ESTATE TYPICALLY INVOLVE?
- One house (the primary residence of the deceased).
- One or more heirs of the decedent (spouse and/or adult children) who are motivated to sell the real estate.
- The heirs list the property and eventually agree to a contract with a buyer.
- The heir(s) will retain an attorney to handle the probate, or the property is already in probate.
- The probate transfers the decedent’s title to the heirs.
- Once the probate transfers title, the heirs collect their money distribution at the closing.
- At the closing, real estate professionals will receive their fees, rather than having to wait until the end of the probate process.
