Decedent Dies Without a Will

When an estate is worth less than $75,000.00, not including homestead and non-probate assets, a Small Estate Affidavit may be executed to transfer property.

An Heirship proceeding may be necessary when the estate is worth more than $75,000.00. This can be costly as the administrator must pay an attorney ad litem to investigate the unknown heirs.

Decedent Dies With a Will

An Affidavit of Heirship may be executed whether the decedent died testate or intestate. It must be signed by a notary and two disinterested persons.

An Independent Administration may be used to obtain letters testamentary or letters of administration which can be used to transfer property after death.

You may also probate a Will as a Muniment of Title only if there are no debts except those secured by real estate liens. This procedure allows for the transfer of title to real property after death.
