    Probate laws vary by state, so you should talk with a lawyer. To my knowledge the only time probate is not required is there are no decedent assets. In other words, the person who died had no property or other assets that could be transferred to their heirs. For example, if the property was already in an heir's name. Otherwise probate is required in order to allow the transfer or sale of the property.
