An Iowa Small Estate Affidavit is a formal request prepared by the legal heirs of the person that passed away if the latter did not compose a will and their estate is not greater than the maximum amount prescribed by the state - the family of the decedent and other beneficiaries have the right to get access to the tangible and intangible property of the estate owner while avoiding the court proceedings.
It is advised to opt for a quick settlement especially if all the prospective heirs can be identified and there are no disputes that involve the estate.
