Texas Muniment of Title

Useful when no debts & only asset is real estate

Probating a Will as a muniment of title is a quick and easy way to probate a Will. Essentially, a muniment of title proceeding is a request to have a judge certify the Will so it can be used as evidence of ownership. Once certified, both the Will and the certifying Order signed by the judge can be used to transfer title to assets. When you probate a Will as a muniment of title, the court will NOT appoint an executor and thus there is no administration of the estate (no collecting assets, paying debts, filing inventories, etc.).
