Jacksonville, FL asked in Probate for Florida

Q: How much does probate costs if the property is under $75k and 1 heir?

Property was left to my cousin. Her father has been deceased since 2007. Property never transferred in her name and I would like to purchase it from her. He has no outstanding debt. The property was the only thing that needed to be transferred. She had POA over his affairs. I paid past due property taxes to avoid it going to auction. The family doesn't want the property and prefers to sell to family, which is why the taxes weren't paid for the last 4yrs.

A: This would be eligible for summary administration, which my firm handles for $2,345.00 flat fee statewide. You can also file this “pro se” without an attorney.
