Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
Here you would probate the will and the possessions are sold by the executor.Any person can purchase this is usually done as a yard estate sale.It is possible for the family to sign settlement agreement if actual division is possible.The mobile home with all appliances belongs to you if titled to your name.The possessions have to pass through probate by will.The executor would file will for probate unless heirs can decide how to fairly divide them among the heirs.If that can be done it avoids the cost and any creditors from probate here.The personal property here goes to the heirs.Any built in furniture that came with mobile home is considered an appliance.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.

Yes this is Idaho.Here any furniture that came with the mobile home is considered part of the home since it was sold that way.It is similar to an appliance.You certainly could try and informally resolve this with the heirs and pay them an agreed upon sum and skip probate.The lawyer could preapre a family settlement agreement if you can negotiate something to avoid probate.
