What are Probate Loans?
Probate loans are loans provided to a home involved in the probate process. Probate is the administration of a deceased person’s estate, with or without a will. A probate loan or estate loan provides funds to the probate estate to accomplish a goal that requires the conversion of equity in the real estate into cash. The probate loan or estate loan is made directly to the estate. A probate loan must be approved by the probate administrator. We call help guide you through the process and if needed, put you in contact with an Attorney, Fiduciary or California Property Tax Consultant to assist you with the process.
Why is a Probate Loan needed in some situations?
A Probate loan or estate loan, provides cash to the estate for a variety of purposes. During the probate process, which can be lengthy, the administrator of the estate may need funds to administer the estate. Examples of this may include utility costs, property taxes, property insurance, association fees, legal expenses, paying off outstanding debt, mortgage payments, or property maintenance expenses. Without a probate loan, the estate may not be able to afford to meet the costs of these expenses. A probate loan or estate loan is also often used to buy out siblings when multiple siblings are inheriting a home from a parent. For example, the child that wants to keep the family home can take out an estate loan and buy out the other siblings with the cash provided from the probate loan. If a child wants to keep a parents low property tax base on an inherited home, the County Assessors Office must approve the exclusion for reassessment. One of the requirements of a California Property Tax Transfer and Exclusion for Property Tax Reassessment is that an equal distribution of assets be made to all child heirs / beneficiaries and that if sufficient cash assets do not exist in the estate, that a non-personally guaranteed 3rd party loan be used to equalize the distribution. If the process is not done correctly, the property may be reassessed at the current market value. On average we are able to save our clients over $6,500 per year in property taxes by helping them avoid property tax reassessment on the inherited home. Additionally, we save the estate over $50,000 on average by avoiding the costly realtor fees associated with selling a home, and all of the heirs / beneficiaries are able to take advantage of that savings.
