Probate Sale? Selling a probate property? Acting as an executor in a sale? Want to know if you can sell before probate is granted? Selling a jointly owned property when one owner has died? What are the legal fees on a probate sale? We can help to guide you through the steps required.
Do you need Probate to sell your property?
The first question to ask is do you actually need to go to the expense of obtaining probate. If a loved one has died and a surviving husband, wife or partner wants to sell the property a simple check on the title deeds can usually identify what documents or additional steps are needed to sell the property.
If the property is in joint names and one of the owners is still alive then invariably the property can be sold without the Grant of Probate.
