Probate Property Sales - FAQs
You cannot legally sell a house while it is under probate. You can put the house on the market, conduct viewings, agree a sale price with a buyer and conduct other preparatory work before the probate process is completed, but you can’t complete the sale until a Grant of Probate has been issued.

The majority of homeowners sell their property via Estate Agents. However many people have little knowledge of how it really works.
Firstly you will have to contact the agent and arrange a meeting that is suitable for you. You normally have to wait for a week. The agent will arrange to take photos of your Orpington house. The agent will then draw up the particulars of the property once the photos and measurements have been taken.
A well-organised agent will advertise your property in the local Orpington newspaper within three weeks. In some cases the property will also be shown on an Internet site.
Within five to six weeks on initial contact with the agent you may begin to get viewings. Your property must be cleaned throughout and any DIY jobs must be carried out, which might cost hundreds or even thousands of pounds.
It’s estimated that on average a property sells after thirteen viewings. Let’s say for example the property sells on the tenth viewing. You would have to keep your home in immaculate condition for several weeks even months before this happens. You will also have to give up a lot of your time - if you work full time, this can be extremely difficult.
Finally, after weeks of viewings, somebody is interested in buying your home. They now need to arrange a mortgage, which would normally take anything up to eight weeks. The buyer’s solicitor contacts your solicitor and the searches and relevant paperwork are undertaken in the meantime. Even at this crucial stage in the sale they have the legal right to walk away, leaving you in limbo.
At UK Homebuyers Ltd we provide a much simpler, quicker and cheaper solution.
How to sell a house before or during probate
If you are selling a house in probate, it’s important to know that it can be a lengthy process. You will need to get a 'Grant of Probate' in place before completing on the sale, which can take several months. You can, however, have the property valued and put it on the market before probate has been granted.
Selling a house during probate involves several different steps:
- Register the death
- Get the house valued
- Check the title and deeds
- Pay inheritance tax
- Apply for a Grant of Probate
If someone makes an offer on the property, you can accept it but you will need to wait for probate before exchanging contracts.
