If you have been named as personal representative or executor for an estate and need to sell a property through probate, you have been given a momentous responsibility. The probate process itself can be complex and confusing to navigate, which is why you need a certified probate real estate specialist on your side.
Probate is a legally mandated process which is required anytime a deceased individual has left behind assets which total in worth to $100,000 or more. When there is a will, the probate court determines whether it applies. If there is no will, then an individual must be selected by the court to oversee the sale or distribution of the deceased person’s property. That person is known as the "personal representative."
If you have been selected to fulfill the duties of a personal representative, then you will need to protect the assets of the deceased and handle their distribution to heirs and creditors as needed. You may also need to sell some of the assets outright.
If one of those assets happens to take the form of a real estate property, your job becomes even more complicated. In the simplest cases, the property was paid for in full before it became your responsibility, but in others, there may be a mortgage which is still in effect.
In handling the sale of that property as well as other assets belonging to the deceased, you will be bound by the laws of Descent and Distribution among other regulations. These laws and regulations need to be followed to the letter to ensure that you are meeting all your legal obligations.
