|FAQ Frequently Asked Questions||Why would assets listed in a will be subject to probate?|
|A Will is your personal written instructions of how you want your assets distributed after your death. A Will does nothing to actually transfer the title to the beneficiaries. A Trust on the other hand actually does transfer title. Because the will fails to do so, the probate court must step in and transfer the title for you.|
Your last Will may say that your house will go to your son. However, if you die with the house solely in your name and not in the name of your son or your Trust, then the probate court will be needed to assist in the transfer of the asset.
