I have an uncle who lived with us for four years who recently passed. He only had a living will. All of his possessions (most of which we are going to pitch) were in his room. He did sign a document noting all those possessions were to be provided to me after he passed.
His investments all have beneficiaries so they are being resolved by providing death certificates to the responsible parties.
Do I need to go into probate for the items in his room which is probably worth at the most $3,000 (if that).
