Navigating Probate Property Sales: Your Guide from ODOS Properties & Partners

Dealing with an inherited property can be a daunting task, ODOS Properties & Partners are here to guide you through the probate process with ease. Whether it's a house, flat, or parcel of land in England & Wales, we specialise in probate property sales and are dedicated to simplifying the journey for you.

Understanding Probate: A Brief Overview

If you're thinking what does probate entail or how do I sell a property in probate we have you covered! Probate, in essence, is the legal procedure for administering a deceased individual's estate. From assessing assets to settling debts and distributing inheritances, the responsibilities of personal representatives (PRs) – whether executors named in a will or administrators appointed by law – are paramount.

Selling a House During Probate: The Essentials

Timing is key when it comes to selling property during probate. Executors wielding a valid will can initiate the marketing process, though finalising the sale requires the grant of probate. Administrators, on the other hand, must await the issuance of letters of administration before proceeding. If you're unsure where you stand with your current situation contact us on 01531 825736.

Is Pre-Probate Sale Possible?

While exceptions exist – such as joint ownership scenarios or properties held in trust – opting to wait for probate ensures a smoother, legally sound process. As such, it's generally advisable to refrain from marketing a property until probate has been obtained.

  4. Prepare the Property for Sale: Undertake necessary repairs, enhancements, or renovations to maximize the property's market appeal and value.

  5. List the Property on the Market: Collaborate with reputable estate agents to effectively market the property, reaching potential buyers and generating interest.

  6. Review and Accept Offers: Evaluate offers received, negotiating terms as necessary, and accept the most suitable offer on behalf of the estate.

  7. Exchange Contracts: Finalize the legalities of the sale, ensuring all parties are in agreement before exchanging contracts and making the transaction legally binding.
