Helping Out Of State Residents With Probate
Florida has long been a vacation and retirement destination, and people from all across the country and other countries own property in Florida. When a nonresident of Florida passes away, leaving real estate and related personal property in this state, the property will need to be handled in Florida probate court. In Florida, in addition to homes, ownership interests in timeshares, vacation clubs and short-term rental properties are all considered interests in real estate that need to pass through Florida ancillary probate following the death of the owner.
