Want to know more about Probate Real Estate?
Probate is the legal process wherein the estate of a decedent is administered. It is the legal method to transfer assets such as houses, cars, stocks, bonds, boats, and personal belongings from a deceased person’s name to his or her estate so they can be sold or distributed to the heirs.
When a person passes away and had accumulated assets in excess of $100,000, his or her estate must go through probate, and the process is overseen by a probate court. If the decedent leaves a will directing how his or her property should be distributed after death, the probate court will determine if it should be admitted to probate and given legal effect. If the decedent dies intestate—without leaving a will—the court appoints a Personal Representative to distribute the decedent’s property according to the laws of Descent and Distribution. These laws direct the distribution of assets based on hereditary succession.
Real Estate may be included in an estate. Sometimes the real estate is owned free and clear but other times the property may be encumbered by a mortgage. Real Estate affected by probate can include houses, condos, timeshares, lots of land, and commercial properties.
If a Personal Representative or an Executor is named it is his or her responsibility to gather deeds, insurance papers, annuities, and mortgage documents. The Representative is also responsible to safeguard the assets while in the midst of probate and to liquidate according to the decedent’s wishes or as necessary in order to pay outstanding obligations.
In California, there are specific rules and guidelines to follow when handling matters of an estate so it’s important to rely on the help of a Probate Real Estate Specialist to make sure the correct processes are followed.

I Am an Heir, and I Want to Buy Our Family Home
So long as all heirs are in agreement, it is possible to purchase a family home- even if there is a reverse mortgage.When a reverse mortgage comes due as a result of a borrowers death, the heirs to the estate may either refinance the home and keep it, sell the home and cash out any equity, or turn the home over to the lender. (Note, however, that the first two options are not available if the home is underwater, because there is no equity).
