Property and Probate

Property in Terms of Probate

The belongings, assets, land or such that an individual owns is their property. These belongings are considered an estate, and when an individual passes away they are allocated among the individual's loved ones. If a piece of property solely is owned by an individual, those assets are distributed. Yet the assets which are owned by more than one party affect how much of the property is allocated.

Also, not all belongings face probate. For example, ยง6600( b1) notes that an individual' s belongings, resources, investments, etc. that were owned by more than just the individual, when they passed away, as well as some insurance or investment that desisted when the individual passed away aren't part of the estate's worth. Also accounts which involved many individuals , isn't a part of the worth of the estate either, if the individual was involved in the account when they passed away . These are just a couple of examples of property that isn't included in an estates worth, and thus isn't allocated.
