If the estate is not subject to probate procedure the personal representative should inform creditors of the death of the person and the deceased's financial status by means of a simple affidavit. Unless checking accounts and other assets (insurance benefits, bonds, stocks, etc.) and property are exempted under state laws, they are subject to creditor action. The best option is to consult with a qualified estate attorney before spending, transferring, distributing or taking any action regarding the personal and/or real property of the deceased.
