An Affidavit of Small Estate is a legal document to speed up the settlement process of the property of such a person who has died without giving his will and the value of the property left is less than $150,000. Small Estate Affidavit helps the probate court to assess that the property fulfills the requirements of a small estate. It also requests the court to initiate the transfer process of that property in the name of the heirs.
