What Is A Small Estate Affidavit?

A small estate affidavit is an effective method to transfer property after someone’s death. This tool is often underutilized and should be eliminated prior to proceeding with a different, more costly form of probate. Further, no court hearing is required – just some paperwork. This cost-efficient form of probate is great for a lot of people. However, only certain estates qualify for the small estate affidavits and there are drawbacks to the small estate affidavit, especially when it comes to real property.
