If an Executor of a will does not go through probate in FL do they still have to file a closing of the estate?Author: admin // Category: fl mortgage
Some people say yes it still has to be filed in court even if it did not go through Probate.
Others say it does not have to be filed in court because it did not involve the court .
This is in FL.
We just went thru. we got a house from parents estate, house was paid off yet showed a mortgage took us two months to straighten out the paperwork. You don’t cross all the t’s etc in the future it could come back to bite you. Damn good thing we ( my sister ) had all the paperwork signed by the probate court.
I would say get it stamped by the courts and county recorders office if t hey come back to you or the executor years later you may bite the bullet. The county Recorders office is there to keep records of transaction and if your paperwork doesn’t show up Good luck. I would talk to both the courts and recorders office play it safe. If we couldn’t get the paperwork straightened out you can’t sell without a clear title. I don’t know what is yin the estate but t his is a legal question don’t take anyone’s word go talk to the recorders office, etc to play it safe
Like you heard some say yes and some say no if everyone agreed it more then likely will be true. I’m telling from personal experience talk to the right people.
