What's subject to probate
My father's will states ''I give al my clothing, jewelry, household furnishings,
personal automobiles, and other tangible articles of a personal nature not
otherwise specifically disposed of by this Will or in any other manner, together
with any insurance on the property, to my daughter (me) if she survives me for
thirty (30) days.''
His mobile home is paid for and registered with DMV and is personal property -
is that covered by the above section of his will as going directly to me?

Re: What's subject to probate
First of all, it depends on the size of his estate. If it exceeds $100,000, it must go through probate. If less than $100,000 there are some administrative things that need to be done to change title. Whether or not a mobile home would be included in the term "tangible articles of a personal nature" is subject to debate, and may not be one of the items willed directly.
