Ancillary/Out-Of-State Administration

Distributing Florida Property in Accordance With Out-of-State Wills

When an out-of-state resident who owns real estate in Florida dies, it is often necessary to open an ancillary probate case in order to have a personal representative (aka executor) appointed who can transfer the property to an heir or sell it according to Florida law.

At Kuhn Law Firm, P.A., we have the experience to guide out-of-state executors through the ancillary probate process. Fort Myers ancillary probate lawyer Scott A. Kuhn, who has been practicing probate law in Florida since 2002, personally supervises every case our firm accepts.

Guiding Clients Through the Process of Probating Florida Real Estate

A great deal of Florida real estate is owned by people who have their primary residences in other states. As a result of this, Florida has a well-developed but potentially complicated ancillary probate process. Scott Kuhn can work with you or your home-state attorney to promptly complete this process.

Our firm is committed to maintaining close, informative and timely communication with our clients, something we know is particularly important when working with a non-local attorney.

There are a number of factors that can impact what needs to be done to complete an ancillary probate in Florida, including whether the deceased person had a will and whether the estate is being probated in his or her home state. We can work with you to address these issues.
