Muniment of Title

If the only property for which title needs to be transferred at the death of Decedent is his or her home, an abbreviated form of probate is available in Texas.  The proceeding is called “Probate of a Will as Muniment of Title.”  It is typically less expensive and takes a shorter amount of time than a full-blown probate.  This proceeding can also be implemented if too much time has passed after the Decedent’s death to initiate a normal probate proceeding.
