Is probate necessary?

In Washington State, if the decedent owned real property, the estate must be entered into probate to transfer the title. There are some exceptions, however. For example: If the decedent was married and had signed a Community Property Agreement then probate would not be necessary.

How long does it take? This depends on whether or not the decedent had a will or not. It also depends on how many heirs are still living, identifiable, and accessible. At a minimum, it will take at least 6 months to close probate.
