Between Probate and Affidavit of Heirship

by Loreena Yeo on April 19, 2012

We had “School on the Square” this afternoon for our monthly continuing education offered by Hexter Fair Title Company here in Frisco TX as well as other committed sponsors. The topic today was “Affidavit of Heirship and Power of Attorneys”. It was presented by Richard Worsham of Title Resources Guaranty.

Here’s what I learned about Probates and Affidavit of Heirship in the 1-hour of MCE:

  1. Don’t die.
  2. Don’t get old.
  3. Don’t be disabled or incapacitated.
  4. Don’t have children outside marriage.
  5. September 1 1993 (before or after) and pie charts.

It’s certainly not an easy topic to understand in an hour. But as listing agents, it is important to understand the basic understanding and differences between Affidavit of Heirship and Probate to know where to point sellers to.

Here in Frisco TX, we are a bunch of lucky Realtors® who get great support and resource for education. I’m glad I attended this short 1-hour MCE. By no means am I claiming I’m an expert but I would certainly be more aware of the complexities of sellers when one passes on with real property in their ownership.
