We talk to quite a few sellers who have inherited a house and want to sell but are stuck at the very beginning of the probate process. Some don’t really know what that means, so today, we are sharing a short YouTube Video we found from Casey Connealy at MidwestEstatePlan.com. It is from a few years ago, but the process has not changed.
So what does probate mean?
The probate process in Kansas City is very simple. It does two things and two things only.
It makes sure the creditors get paid.
So if the deceased owes money to someone, for example final expenses, credit card bills, or medical bills, the probate court in Kansas City is going to make sure those creditors get paid.
It makes sure the title of assets gets changed.
Before the passing away, a person has the ability to sign off on documents to change ownership. But once they pass away, they are no longer able to sign off on assets like a house or bank accounts. The probate court offers the process to get that done.
Probate in Kansas City is not necessarily a good or bad thing, it’s just a process that needs to be completed if the deceased didn’t take any steps before death to create a trust to handled their affairs or taken alternative steps to transfer assets before they passed.
If you need to sell, no matter the situation, please, don’t hesitate to call.
I was in a probate/estate sale situation. My father passed away with no will. I had to go to court just to be named the administrator. I didn’t know what to do or who to call. I heard about KcmoHomebuyer and gave them a call. I met Scott at my father’s house. He was very, very sincere and helpful. I was pleased with his offer and as they say, the rest is history. If you need to sell, no matter the situation, please, don’t hesitate to call Scott at KcmoHomebuyer. You will not regret it. Thank you so much, Scott!!
