My Relative Died in Another State But Has Property in Alabama

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A PERSON DIES IN ONE STATE, BUT HAS PROPERTY SUCH AS A HOUSE, RENTAL PROPERTY OR VACATION HOME OR LAND IN ALABAMA?

When a person dies with property such as a house, rental property or vacation home or land in Alabama, what the law calls “Real Property”, but the person actually lived in another state, an Ancillary Administration must be opened to sell or otherwise transfer the title to that property.   You or another family member may already be the personal representative, Executor, Executrix, Administrator or Administratrix of a decedent's estate in a state other than Alabama, and the decedent has real property here in Alabama. In this case, you need to open an Ancillary Administration here in Alabama to transfer clear title to the heirs or otherwise to sell the property. When Letters are granted to a nonresident Executor/Executrix or Administrator/Administratrix, the assets of the Estate upon which such Letters are granted, which may be within the State of Alabama at the date of such Letters, shall in all respects be administered and settled as if such letters had been issued to a resident Executor/Executrix or Administrator/Administratrix.
