What Assets Are Subject to Probate in My State?

If you are planning to transfer your assets to someone else, you should know which assets are subject to probate. The probate process is a legal process that ensures the proper distribution of your property according to state law.


Typically, your personal possessions, household items, and vehicles go through the probate process. However, there are certain assets that you can choose to skip the probate process. These include assets that are jointly owned, such as real estate. Other non-probate assets include life insurance policies and retirement accounts.

Probate does not apply to assets that have a named beneficiary, such as bank accounts. Assets that are titled in a trust name can also be excluded from the probate process.

Some states have simplified their probate procedures, especially for small estates. In such cases, the probate court will only oversee the assets that are subject to distribution in the will.

Consult an Attorney

In some states, a quit claim deed or another form of testamentary instrument can be used to dispose of a deceased person’s belongings. However, this form of inheritance is not without its risks. You should consult a lawyer before signing any document.

Going through probate

Real estate in joint tenancy with the right of survivorship is another type of property that must go through probate. This is most commonly seen in business partnerships. Once one of the owners passes away, the other owners continue to own their share of the property.

Lastly, your assets that are titled in a trust name or in your name only can be excluded from the probate process. These include retirement accounts, life insurance policies, and securities.
