PROBATE ISSUES AND INTERSTATE SUCCESSION THROUGH AFFIDAVITS OF HEIRSHIP, TRANSFER ON DEATH DEEDS AND LADY BIRD DEEDS
When an owner of property passes away, a determination of who inherited the property can be made through the court system if a will is probated, or through the laws of intestacy if no will is probated. Other "non-probate" options include Transfer on Death Deeds and Lady Bird Deeds. This session will provide a broad overview of all of these options, to help title professionals determine who inherited a property they are asked to insure.
