We spend our lives working hard to accumulate assets we can pass down to our children and families after we die. Part of that hard work needs to include estate planning to ensure the property and assets we leave behind make it to our loved ones as intended
Some people pass away leaving only their home or other real estate behind. Estates that are made up almost exclusively of real estate and personal items are subject to the same guidelines as any other estate.
When a person passes away in Florida, there are a few ways their estate may be settled. During the estate administration process, the property and assets of a decedent are identified, collected, and distributed to their rightful beneficiaries.
