Muniment of Title

One of the simplest ways of probating a will in Texas is muniment of title. Under this process, no administrator or executor will be appointed by the court. Once the will is admitted into probate, assets may be distributed according to the will. However, to be able to use muniment of title, the deceased must not have any debts other than a mortgage that is secured by the real property. Even a small credit card bill or medical bill may prohibit you from probating the will as a muniment of title. That’s why sometimes we advise the family to pay off all the outstanding bills (if they are small ones) in order to be able to probate the will as a muniment of title.
