What is Probate?

Probate is a legal process that is followed when a person's personal representative applies to the probate court to administer the person's estate. This process is generally required in order to settle any debts or obligations the person had, and to distribute their assets to the rightful heirs according to their will. During the probate process, the personal representative will be required to accurately list all of the person's assets, liabilities, debts and taxes owed. The court will also ensure that any creditors are paid in full, or in the case of any estates deemed insolvent, that their debts don't exceed the value of their estate. The probate court may also act as an impartial judge in the case of any contested wills or disputed claims over the person's estate. Once this process is complete, the court will issue a “final decree” which validates the distribution of the estate to the rightful heirs and marks the end of the probate procedure. During this process, getting an appraisal is beneficial to ensuring an accurate value of the estate is established.

Why do I need an appraisal for Probate?

An appraisal is an important step when transferring property during probate. Without one, the estate may not be able to carry out the appropriate procedures. An appraisal provides the Probate Court with the necessary information to ensure that the distribution of property is carried out with fairness and in accordance with the deceased's will. The appraisal effectively determines the fair market value of the estate based on the condition of the property at the time of the decedent's death. The appraiser will consider factors such as location, size, age, condition, amenities and recent sales in the area as well as any factors that may affect the market value of the property. In addition, an appraisal can be beneficial during the division of property among heirs, as tangible items are assigned a dollar value. This can help in resolving any disputes among heirs and avoiding potential litigation. The appraisal is an important part of the Probate process and should not be overlooked. It will provide an accurate market value of the estate, enabling the Probate Court to properly administer the deceased's estate in accordance with the will.
