Ohio Small Estate Affidavit Form: What Is It?

Filling in an Ohio Dakota Small Estate Affidavit Form provides the legal power for an individual to collect a small estate property from an individual that has passed away, known as the decedent. This document allows the affidavit to inherit the property much more quickly after which they will become the legal owner of the small estate.

  • Application to Relieve Estate From Administration

The main advantage of using an Ohio Small Estate Affidavit is that the period of time you have to wait before collecting the property is considerably shorter, mainly because the probate procedure is avoided. However, the Ohio Small Estate Affidavit requirements need to be taken into consideration before the estate can be collected. These requirements are listed below:

  • There is no minimal time period that the individual must wait after the passing of the decedent;
  • There is a limit on the total value of small estate. In Ohio this should not be greater than thirty thousand dollars unless the decedent left behind a spouse that is entitled to the estate or this is mentioned in the will. In this case, the value can be increased up to one hundred thousand dollars;
  • The individual planning on filing the document must also publish this information in a local newspaper (local in relation to the decedent);
  • An appraisal may also be required from a certified appraiser that is confirmed by the court;
  • The form should be signed by the individual filing the document and the probate judge. If the individual has a lawyer, they would also need to sign the document.
