After a loved one passes away, it is often necessary to transfer the title of assets from the estate or trust of the deceased individual to their heirs. If the person that passed away had a trust, then the trust will need to be properly administered by the successor trustee. If there are any additional assets that are not part of a trust and such assets did not have beneficiary designations on them, then a probate proceeding may be necessary. Probate proceedings tend to be complicated in that there are numerous statutory requirements that must be carefully followed.
