Vehicle Transfer Without Probate

Leave a comment

Sometimes the only property in an estate that is not jointly titled is a vehicle. To solve the problem of getting the vehicle transferred and to keep from having to open a formal estate administration, if the vehicle is paid off, the next of kin may file an Affidavit for Assignment of Title for a Vehicle from a Deceased Owner Whose Estate Does Not Require Probate(Alabama Department of Revenue MVT 5-6).   

Title can be transferred by filing the affidavit at the tag and title office of the local probate court. If the vehicle is not paid off it will likely need to be refinanced, and the lender needs to be put on notice of the death.
