No, FL law requires probate to transfer title to spouse and other beneficiaries. Discuss
with attorney regarding legal procedure and options. Value of property, other estate
assets, expenses, debts, and family relationships must be considered if laws of
intestacy determine distribution. Will and trusts are suggested to avoid such
Also, as to who gets it and how, it depends upon if there were children who may get an interest as well.
