Top Mistakes to Avoid When Selling a Probate Property

4 Top Mistakes to Avoid When Selling Probate Real Estate

Avoiding these common mistakes when selling probate real estate will save you time, help you avoid unnecessary stress – and could save you thousands of dollars.

1. Not having the right guidance.  If you do not feel comfortable filing the petition for probate on your own, seek professional legal advice from a qualified attorney.

2. Not communicating with the heirs on a regular basis.  Heirs can provide a great deal of assistance when preparing inventory and accounts

3. Not knowing how probate works.  Begin by looking for a will or trust.  Don’t be discouraged if you can’t find these documents.  It is still possible to settle the estate.

4. Not meeting deadlines i.e., petitions, notices.  Deadlines are important and missing them can result in court delays.
