If a loved one passes away in Idaho, the successors may avoid probate court by filing a small estate affidavit to collect real estate owned by the decedent. This property at fair market value, minus taxes, liens, and other expenses, may not value more than $100,000. In addition, the real estate may not exceed the “homestead allowance,” as discussed under Idaho Code §§ 15-3-1203.
