Many estate heirs and executors find themselves in a position where they need money right away. A probate advance is a funding solution that enables heirs and executors to receive money immediately in exchange for a portion of their inheritance distribution once probate is over.
We’ve helped over 1,500 people receive their inheritance money faster in the last two years so we fully understand what you are going through.
Waiting for probate can cause financial hardship if you have to pay for funeral costs, mortgage fees, home repair and other costs that may be incurred by the estate. Even worse, probate courts have backed up even further as a result of the pandemic which has been widely covered by newspapers all over the country.
Let’s jump right into your options and what a probate advance entails.
What Are The Steps To Get An Inheritance Advance?
When a loved one passes away, with a will, the person who is the executor gets to be in charge of the probate process. This involves taking inventory of the estate property, ensuring that all estate debts are paid, and seeing that all rightful heirs receive their rightfully owed inheritance.
If a loved one dies, without a will, an administrator will be picked to handle the estate and carry out duties in compliance with the state law where the loved one lived or where the real estate is.
Once again, the probate process can take up to years to fully process through which is why many heirs or executors of estates will seek an advance on their inheritance.
Below is a step-by-step procedure for a probate advance:
- The consultation
- Getting the necessary documents ready
- Deciding on the amount you want as advance
- Receive the probate advance
Note that before receiving an inheritance advance, a probate administration should be opened, and an executor should be appointed, after that an accounting of the estate should occur so you know how much money you will be receiving. After that, it is easy for us to provide a probate advance. Here are the steps:
A compassionate of our Funding Executives will explain the process, pricing, and answer any questions you may have about receiving a probate advance. The first step is to fill out a probate advance application where we determine the size of the estate, establish an understanding of where the estate is within the probate process and establish if an estate advance is going to be right for you based on the size of the estate and the number of beneficiaries. Since this is just an advance on the estate, it is not based on a personal credit score.
After the initial consultation, the next step is to review all of your probate case documents. We will begin this step by reviewing the position the probate is currently in and the will of the person deceased if there was one left as well as the beneficiaries. Our team will also review some basic estate information and paperwork to make sure there is enough in the estate fund to access the inheritance advance quickly. We do this so the process goes as smoothly as possible and so you can get cash in hand as soon as possible which is much different than an inheritance loan.

What Are The Reasons To Get A Probate Advance?
Accessing money during probate is difficult because you technically don’t own any of the assets in the estate until the title is legally transferred to you. A probate advance is a way for you to receive funds immediately if you need them, you just sell a portion of your inheritance proceeds in exchange for a lump sum of money. The company providing the probate advance then waits until the probate has concluded and they then receive a distribution of the portion of the probate that you sold them.
There are several reasons why someone might want to get a probate advance:
To pay for funeral and burial expenses: Probate advances can provide funds to cover the cost of a funeral and burial, which can be significant.
To pay for outstanding debts: If the deceased person had outstanding debts that need to be paid, a probate advance can provide the funds to pay these debts.
To maintain the estate during the probate process: Probate can take several months or even years to complete, and during this time, the estate may need to be maintained. A probate advance can provide the funds to pay for necessary expenses, such as property taxes, insurance, and other bills.
To pay for legal fees: The probate process can involve legal fees, and a probate advance can provide the funds to pay for these fees.
To provide financial support for the beneficiaries: If the beneficiaries of the estate are dependent on the income or assets of the deceased person, a probate advance can provide temporary financial support until the estate is settled.
To cover unexpected expenses: There may be unexpected expenses that arise during the probate process, and a probate advance can provide the funds to cover these expenses.
