Is the inheritance personal property or real estate? What happens to the decedent’s personal property?
The estate is a set of assets in which both real estate and movable property are included. In addition, it may include claims, debts, property rights (e.g.copyright). It does not belong to the estate, but unless otherwise specified, the heir may claim the reversion (e.g. insurance, pension fund etc.) The private property of the deceased is given to the heir in the probate proceedings. This is merely a finding that, with the death of the deceased, the ownership of the inheritance has transferred to the heir. In some situations, the real estate might be sold during the probate process in order to preserve its market-value at that given time. However, if the real estate is not sold yet and the heirs would like to sell it, then Family Tree Ltd. will assist with the sale of the real estate.
