Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.
You cannot file a small estate affidavit for these assets.You will need to make regular application for probate of a will or if no will then court supervised.
Here there is real estate and a secured creditor, these require regular probate and appointment of a personal representative.The PR once qualified then would pay claims, taxes, and either sell property or deed it to the heirs.Given these assets here regular probate is required in PA.
Forms to open probate.
Step by step..
Expect this to take about a year from start to finish here.No way around regular probate with a house here and note.Thanks again.
Your application here can be made by one person if you choose seeking to be named personal representative.But it has to be regular probate.
If you can leave a positive rating when we are done it is always much appreciated.
You would have to list the house and the statute specifically says it does not include real estate.Once you are appointed personal representative here and issued letters testamentary then you can deed it to the legal heirs.
Fiduciary deed here you would do as part of probate ..
Here the small estate would work if there was not real estate and debts here as well. I am so sorry you got bad information here.I wish you the best and appreciate the chance to help you.
