Skilled Legal Representation In Ancillary Probate Matters
When someone dies while a resident of another state but owns a house or other real estate in New York, certain highly specific legal proceedings are required in order for heirs to take ownership of the New York property. Individuals and families faced with this situation are often overwhelmed by the complex requirements in a time of great loss.
Assisting In Multi-State Probate Matters
The legal process most commonly required to distribute an out-of-state decedent’s New York property is called ancillary probate, and it is handled by the New York State Surrogate’s Court. The steps required in New York ancillary probate depend on many factors, including whether the deceased person had a will, who has been appointed personal representative or executor, and the value of the property in question.
