A: The answer depends on facts that you didn't provide. If you can provide more details about the owner, the home, the owner's heirs, and the owner's Will then it might be possible to answer. A probate is not always required or necessary to transfer real estate from an estate but it depends on many factors.

You may want to consult with an attorney, knowledgeable in probate, in the county where the home is located. The Arkansas Bar Association can help you locate attorneys in the specific area and they can be reached at 1-800-609-5668.
