The probate process for a house in Texas – don’t get shortchanged

So what is probate?

The probate process for a house is the legal process where a will is reviewed in court to prove that it is authentic and valid. When someone in possession of an asset passes with a will, the court appoints an executor named in the will to handle the process of the probate. Once someone is appointed, they are in charge of handling the process of paying any liabilities and distributing anything left over according to the details of the will.

How to begin the probate process for a house in Dallas

Once someone passes, it’s encouraged to meet with an estate attorney to begin the probate process. Soon after this, the executor of the estate will be expected to meet in front of the court. A simple estate could take around 6 months to complete the probate process, but it could take up to 12 months.

Note: It is important for the executor to familiarize themselves with the property to avoid being short-changed.

Okay, my property is on the market, now what?

Now, after the property is advertised on the market then it is up to the seller to wait for the buyers to make offers on the property. Once this process is completed, the final decision is made by the probate court on who should buy the property based on an auction if there was more than one interested buyer. It’s important to allow a professional to handle this process.
