What are the steps I need to take when dealing with a probate case?

it would be best to discuss the matter with a probate attorney to review the "property" you are referring to. If there are creditors, they may open a probate estate if there are assets to recover.
"Clearing your name" of this property may not be as simple as you believe. I strongly suggest that you contact a Probate attorney to assist you.
