Appraisals for “Probate” are becoming more frequently requested as a necessary legal requirement when completing and settling an Estate. A lawyer or legal representative may advise you to obtain an “appraisal of assets” for the purpose of Probate.
A PROBATE case requires the decedent’s property to be appraised, in order to determine the cash value of the property as of the date of the decedent’s death. The probate court needs to know the total cash value of the estate, prior to distribution of the assets.
