What is probate?

Probate is a legal process that happens when someone dies. It involves:

  • Validating the deceased’s will
  • Assessing the estate’s value
  • Paying any outstanding debts or taxes
  • Distributing the remaining assets as per the will or intestacy rules if no will exists.

Probate is a crucial aspect of estate management.

Why sell your inherited house quickly?

There are several reasons why someone might want to sell an inherited property quickly. To start with, maintaining a property can be time-consuming and financially burdensome, with costs such as upkeep, taxes and insurance.

Secondly, the property may be in a different location, making it impractical to hold onto. Selling fast can also help avoid potential disputes among heirs and avoid things becoming messy. Plus, the emotional weight of the property might be too much for some. 

Lastly, a quick sale provides immediate liquidity, which can be beneficial if the inheritor is financially strained or can’t afford the inheritance tax due on the home.

Alternative ways to sell your inherited home

Other ways to sell your inherited property include using an estate agent or putting it up for sale at auction. Both of these methods have their advantages and disadvantages, and it’s important to be well-informed before making a decision. 

Instructing an estate agent can offer valuable guidance and expertise. They handle marketing, conduct viewings and negotiate on your behalf, which can potentially net a higher selling price. The process may take longer, however, and you’ll need to factor in the agent commission, which can cost several thousand pounds. 

Selling at auction is typically quicker than using a traditional estate agent and often results in a sale within a month. It also provides certainty; once the hammer falls, the sale is legally binding. It’s not all good news, though. Auctions can be unpredictable, and there’s a risk of not achieving the highest possible price. You don’t have control at a property auction, and you should bear this in mind when making a decision about how to sell your inherited property.
