Muniment of Title is a probate procedure unique to Texas probate laws. There are many financial institutions that do not recognize and understand Muniment of Title. These financial institutions may require the beneficiaries under a Will to present them with “Letters Testamentary” or “Letters of Administration” before they will pay out a bank account, brokerage account, or retirement account to a deceased person’s beneficiaries under the Will. A probate attorney can assist you and advise you about whether Probate of a Will as Muniment of Title is an available option under Texas probate laws or whether an estate administration is necessary.
