When a person passes, the ownership (the legal title) of his or her property, assets and personal effects are transferred to the beneficiaries listed in their Will. If there is no Will, the persons receiving assets are designated by State law. This legal proceeding determines the distribution of the decedent’s property. It also includes paying a decedent’s final bills, estate/inheritance taxes. There are many steps to probate, such as appointing a personal representative, locating a decedent’s assets, determining values, income tax filings, etc. Therefore, it is important to hire an experienced attorney that can carry out your wishes as a neutral third party after your passing and pursuant to your wishes (on your Will), or hire an experienced attorney to resolve any address and issues regarding the estate of a decedent’s assets.

Property signifies dominion or right of use, control, and disposition which one may lawfully exercise over things, objects, or land.

Land, in its general usage, includes not only the face of the earth but everything of a permanent nature over or under it. This includes structures and minerals. There are further divisions within the real property classification. The most important are freehold estates, non-freehold estates, and concurrent estates. (Others are future interests, specialty estates, and incorporeal interests).
Residential real estate is referred to property consisting of land and the buildings on it. It can also consist of the property’s natural resources, removable property, interest, rentals and investment property.
