Can Anyone Find Out What Assets Are In An Estate When It Is Probated?



Video Summary

Can anyone find out what assets are in an estate when it is probated? The answer to that question is no. Only the beneficiaries are entitled to see the inventory of the assets. The inventory and a probate proceeding is sealed, so that only the interested parties, or the lawyers for the executor and the beneficiaries can access it. And so only the beneficiaries are entitled to know what's in the assets of the estate. And so that inventory is sealed.

So if you have any questions about probate and whether or not you've been left anything, the will is public record. The first thing to do would be to determine if you are a beneficiary. If you're not, well you're not entitled to know what's in the estate, as well as the bad players out there that are trying to target people that maybe inherit a lot of money.
