Florida Real Estate Probate: Understanding Probate Property Laws

Many Florida estates involve transferring real property (that is, land and houses) to the heirs of the estate, or involve a sale of property by the estate during probate administration. Florida probate law varies depending on the type of property.

Florida Homestead Property Probate Rules

If the deceased's real estate is considered their "homestead," the state of Florida applies certain unique rules to the transfer of the property. The homestead property exemption was created to protect families from being displaced from their home; however, there are many special rules to this probate property law. To learn if the property in your estate is considered homestead property, it is best to speak with a knowledgeable Florida probate attorney.
