Q: Can we transfer deceased fathers mobil home title in Michigan to heirs if value is over 10 thousand no will
4 children all in agreement no other assets
If the total value of all vehicles owned by the deceased does not exceed $60,000 and that the estate of the deceased is not being probated and will NOT be probated then there is an ‘expedited’ process involving only the Secretary of State and not the Probate Court.
But I would STRONGLY urge you to consult with a local probate attorney if for no other reason than to publish an appropriate claims notice and insure you won’t have other issues.
It won’t be a large expense even if you want to hire the attorney to help, and he may be able to quote you a flat fee even.
Get that local legal help!
A: I agree with Mr. Zichi. In the situation you describe you may be able to go to the Secretary of State and use Form TR-29, Certification from Heir to a Vehicle. But it would be wise to do a brief consult with a local probate attorney just to be sure you aren't missing anything.
