It's not a loan. So you probably won't be able to get one at anyplace that does traditional lending like a local bank or credit union. It's a cash advance or a purchase of part of the inheritance. You actually sell a portion of the expected inheritance in exchange for receiving money now.
Requirements for a cash advance are relatively simple. You'll probably be working with a private investment or financial company that specializes in probate type loans and advances. They will handle 90% of the processing.
So What will they look at to Process the advance?
They will need to see documents proving the estate and documents proving that the inheritance is an expected amount. This could be proof of the value of a house, accounts statements, anything showing the value of the assets in the estate. They will have to talk with the attorney handling the estate as well and will have to file some documents with the attorney and with the probate court.
This entire process takes very little time and can be completed in three to seven (3-7) days.
How much can you get advanced?
This depends entirely on the value of the estate itself. The financial company will limit how much it advances to between 30 and 50% percent of the expected inheritance. The most common amounts that seem to get advanced are between $5,000 and $20,000. There are some very large transactions and those can be as much as $1 million or more. Of course, the estate needs to support that amount.
Getting an inheritance loan is not the first place to look when looking for some money for a project, but it is a viable alternative. Inheritance advances are an effective ay to pull out some money from an estate to avoid the often inevitable inheritance delays that come with the Probate legal system here in the US or Canada.
