Selling the property assets of a deceased relative is a complex and challenging task for family members and auction is increasingly being seen as the quickest and most straightforward option.
Probate property sales are a complicated business, and can cause additional stress and worry at an emotional time. The major asset, usually the house, needs to be sold to settle the terms of any will but it is rarely a straightforward process and tight legislation can often result in lengthy delays.
So what are the benefits of using the auction process to sell a probate property?
Here at FSS, we have extensive experience in the sale of probate properties. The auction route to market is being used more frequently in such cases and has a number of advantages:
We can, of course, help to sell the property in the traditional way but having an auction arm to our business allows us to offer more options. Probate properties can vary considerably in size, condition and value.
At FSS we have the expertise to help make the entire process easier and are always sensitive to our clients’ needs.
We are used to working alongside solicitors and have a thorough understanding of the legislation surrounding probate properties.
There are lots of considerations to take into account but it’s worth remembering you do have a number of choices available to you when it comes to settling your probate property arrangements.
