IT MAY SEEM LIKE THERE IS AN OVERWHELMING LIST OF THINGS TO DO FOLLOWING THE LOSS OF A LOVED ONE. nOT ONLY ARE YOU DEALING WITH THE LOSS, BUT NOW YOUR ALSO HAVING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH THE PROPERTY LEFT BEHIND.
IT CAN BE TOUGH. HOWEVER, While this is a time of mourning it's important that all parties involved realize that there are legal issues involving the estate that have to be dealt with IN A TIMELY MANOR. These legal issues can be even more complicated if the deceased either failed to draft a will, or if they had a will but it cannot be located.
If the deceased has no will or no accessible will then the situation is referred to as dying in testate. This is basically a term that SIMPLY MEANS "there is no will". So do you have to go through probate in the state of Florida if there is no will IN PLACE?
