What Is Considered Exempt Property in Florida?

If a decedent passed with a surviving spouse or children, certain property of the decedent is considered exempt property and passes to the surviving spouse or children without being subject to unsecured creditor’s claims. Examples are: two (2) standard vehicles and household furnishings. Once determined as exempt property, the asset cannot be used to pay a creditor claim filed in the estate.

Exempt property also often includes homestead property, though this is subject to a different set of rules.
