Understanding your real estate options going through probate
Probate is simply the legal process that settles a deceased person’s debts and formally passes their property’s legal title to the intended heirs. That is, of course, if there is a will to properly identify the intended recipients.
However, if the homeowner to passes away without officially naming who will receive their property, the state steps in to administer the sale of the home through a special probate court.

How long does probate take?
Once probate is officially granted, the process moves forward much like a traditional sale. Because the length of grant of probate varies from state to state, it is not uncommon for the process to take months.
