Tennessee will probably require some form of

administration there to insure there are no unpaid

creditors in that jurisdiction. This usually

amounts to a filing of the Will, death certificate

Order appointing personal representative in NC,

etc. and publishing for creditors. This activity

will also help establish what lawyers call a

"chain of title".

If someone dies as a resident of North Carolina,

the major probate proceeding is in North Carolina.

If the deceased owned real property in Tennessee,

what is known as an ancillary probate should also

take place in Tennessee.
