SMALL ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

 

What is small estate administration?

Small estate administration is a simplified procedure used when the value of the decedent’s personal property does not exceed, subject to certain exceptions, $150,000. This process is also commonly called a small estate affidavit, or A small estate declaration. Collection via small estate administration allows a person to receive an inheritance by presenting an affidavit or declaration to the holder of the decedent’s personal property.
