In certain circumstances, a decedent’s personal property may be transferred to the “successors” of the decedent without the need to open a full probate estate with the probate court. This saves time and money.
The decedent’s entire estate must qualify as a small estate (i.e. under $40,000 in value) according to Missouri’s Probate Code. If the Estate meets these criteria, the decedent’s successors may make their claims to the property and take title (assuming there are no conflicting claims) by filing a small probate estate.
