Affidavit For Collection Of Personal Property Of Decedent, Forms AOC-E-203A and AOC-E-203B, Rev. 1/12 Whether or not the decedent left a will, and regardless of the value of any real property owned by the decedent, if 1) the value of the decedent's personal property, less liens and encumbrances (and less the spousal allowance under G.S. 30-15 for a decedent dying on or after 1/1/12), does not exceed $20,000 ($30,000 if the surviving spouse is the sole heir or devisee of the decedent), and 2) at least 30 days have passed since the date of death without anyone qualifying as personal representative, the estate may be administered by affidavit as a small estate pursuant to G.S. 28A-25-1 and G.S. 28A-25-1.1. An executor named in the will, an heir, devisee or creditor of the estate, with the approval of the Clerk of Superior Court, may file the necessary affidavit using this form, and thereby qualify as collector by affidavit of the estate. Side Two of the form contains a preliminary listing of the assets of the estate. This part of the form is intended as a preliminary report to the clerk, heirs and creditors of the nature and probable value of the property, real and personal, wherever located, owned by the decedent as of the date of death. General Instructions: Type or print neatly in black ink. All values reported should be the fair market value of the item as of the date of death. If there is not sufficient space on this form, continue on a separate attachment. Except where instructed to itemize, you should report in a lump sum the estimated total value of all property in each category. A complete itemization and valuation of decedent's property must be listed on the final Affidavit Of Collection, Disbursement and Distribution form (AOC-E-204) and filed with the clerk within three months after the filing of the initial affidavit (AOC-E-203A and AOC-E-203B). "Account" includes accounts in banks, savings and loans and other financial institutions, including money market accounts with brokerage houses or similar institutions. "Joint Account With Right Of Survivorship" is an account in the name of two or more persons in which the deposit agreement (1) is signed by all parties and (2) expressly provides that, upon the death of one of the joint depositors, the interest of the decedent passes to the survivor(s). Any joint account which is not "with right of survivorship" is a joint account without right of survivorship. "Stocks Or Bonds With Right Of Survivorship" are securities in which the certificate clearly states that upon the death of one of the joint owners the interest of the decedent passes to the survivor(s). Any jointly owned security which is not owned "with right of survivorship," is owned without right of survivorship. "Securities Registered In Beneficiary Form" means stocks, bonds, or other securities officially registered with the issuer of the security indicating the current owner of the security and the person who will automatically become the new owner of the security upon the death of the owner." (See G.S. 41-40 et. seq.) PART I. PROPERTY OF THE ESTATE 1.

If the percentage owned by the decedent is unclear, report the percentage as 100%, and list the total amount on deposit on the date of death. A copy of the signature card or depository contract should be attached either to this form or the final Affidavit Of Collection, Disbursement And Distribution (AOC-E-204). 3. Stocks And Bonds In Sole Name Of Decedent Or Jointly Owned Without Right Of Survivorship - If the percentage owned by the decedent can be determined, report that percentage and the value, in a lump sum, of that percentage.

A detailed itemization of these assets must be reported in the final Affidavit Of Collection, Disbursement And Distribution (AOC-E-204). 4. through 7. These categories should be self-explanatory. 8.
