Frequently Asked Questions

What is a probate property?

Estates can be both small and large, but its important to ensure they are distributed correctly regardless. Larger estates often include a property making up the bulk of the estates value. A probate property is a property within the deceased’s estate, often their home which they have left behind. The deceased must have owned the property for it to be considered a probate property. Simply renting, or staying in a property they do not own is not considered as such.

A probate property doesn’t just consist of 4 walls and a roof, it often encapsulates the entire property. This includes all the contents inside and any valuables which may be within the house. This may consist of cars, antiques, jewellery and so on.

What happens when a property owner dies?

The deceased will specify a named person to deal with the estate (or the deceased’s next of kin if there is no will). They are responsible for the legal affairs and will often obtain ‘probate’ (where there is a will) or ‘letters of administration’ (no will), which enables them to act as the personal representative. Probate also enables the personal representative to transfer or sell the property.

If you are named executor or you are the Next of Kin it will then become your duty to make sure the property is secured, insured and well maintained while you obtain Probate. To obtain Probate you will need certain valuations and documents in the property which will assist your application i.e. bank statements and policy documents. We provide a service where we can search the property for all the documents you will require.

Does Probate need to be granted before we can sell the property?

Whilst you can market properties before Probate is granted, you cannot sell the Property unless your name is on the deed i.e. you are the deceased’s spouse. Most people advertise the property whilst the application for Probate is going through. The seller must be Granted the Probate before the sale can be completed.
