How to sell your house during probate

PROBATE QUESTIONS IN FLORIDA: Do You need to sell your house during probate?

 

Of course, there is a much more detailed legal side to probate which is why many clients work with a probate lawyer. We are now going to cover some of these topics and definitions below to better help you understand what is involved. Here is some information on this process.

So How Do You Sell Your House During Probate?

One of the main questions an heir faces is this: How Do You Know If You Must Go Through The Probate Process?

If the property was only in the decedent’s name at the time of death or if it was in the decedent’s name and other parties names as tenants in common (without right of survivorship), then probate will be needed in order to transfer the ownership of the property in order to sell the inherited house.

When Does The Property Not Have To Go Through The Probate Process?

Ownership Of The Property Can Be Passed On Without Going Through The Probate Process In The Following Situations.

  • If the decedent was married at his time of passing and the property was in the husband and wife’s name as tenancy by the entireties.
  • If the property was held by the decedent and other parties as joint tenants with the right of survivorship.
  • If the property is held in a trust
  • If the property was in a life estate with the remainder of interest to another.

What Are The Two Most Common Types Of Probate In Florida?

Formal Administration

Formal Administration is the most common form of probate in Florida. It requires that a petition be filed with the court and an executor (personal representative) be named to handle the liquidation (if needed) and the distribution of all proceeds from the deceased person’s estate by court approval.

All Creditors must be paid first from the proceeds and the rest is distributed to the named beneficiaries. If the value of the estate is more than $75,000 USD, in most cases, a formal administration is required.

In this type of procedure the Executor generally has the right to sell the property on behalf of the estate, as long as the will included a “power of sale” provision. Otherwise, proper authorization from the court is required to sell the property and transfer the deed. This is important to know before signing a contract with a home buyer.

Summary Administration

If the total value of the estate is less than $75,000, or it has been more than two years since the deceased passed, the court can provide an outline for the distribution of the estate and no formal Executor needs to be named.

This simplifies the process overall and the court can simply authorize the sale of the property in question. However, if the will states that formal administration is required, summary administration can not be used.

FL Probate Definitions

TESTATE – This means that the person died with a will in place that usually outline how the decedent wanted to disperse the assets of the estate.

INTESTATE Probate– the person died without a will in place. In this case you will follow the requirements of the intestate law in Florida.

Do You Need to Sell a “Probate House” in Jacksonville FL?

We are aware that every deceased estate is different, and there are typically multiple family members involved in making these decisions.

Our goal is to first help you understand the probate rules that affect your inherited property, and present sound options you can discuss with those discussing the best decision.

While some family members may prefer to fix up the house for a potential buyer, or to accommodate the surviving spouse for a short time prior to entering assisted living, we realize there is a lot to discuss.

These conversations can be very stressful. For this reason we seek to be an “unemotional” 3rd party who can lay out the facts, numbers, and realistic expectations of what each option means for the family.

Timing will also play a role with regard to the Florida probate court. By understanding the ground rules you need to play by, we can help guide you to a successful probate sale that also doesn’t come back with legal surprises later.

If you are already talking with a probate attorney, we are happy to get involved during the probate process and provide a true assessment of the real estate’s value in its present condition.

While probate homes offer their own set of legal challenges, the truth is we get a chance to help a family out who is going through a tough time. When we say, “we solve real, estate problems,” we mean it.

At Freedom Home Buyers, we are experienced in buying houses in Jacksonville that have been inherited and are in the probate process. So if you need to sell your house during probate, we can help. This includes selling homes that are vacant, are still full of items (hoarder houses) from the deceased, or need work.

It’s common for us to buy Jacksonville houses in as-is condition, so don’t worry about the need to make repairs before calling us to take a look. No condition will scare us off, we have even purchased condemned houses!

We have years of experience dealing with these types of emotionally charged and highly sensitive situations and have developed a system that makes it as easy on you as possible. Our expert acquisitions team can take you through every step of the process.

So, are you ready to put this stressful situation behind you?

The process with Blaine was a pleasure.I had a problematic tenant that had stopped paying me rent in a house I wanted to sell. Taking advantage of the eviction delays. While the tenant was there I had numerous low ball offers from investment groups and even had a contract that fell thru a day before closing after they kept calling me to lower the contract price. Thru all of that Blaine kept in touch with me and told me he had an offer when the tenant was gone. A day after the tenant moved out I met with one of Freedom’s team members and we agreed on a great price and signed a contract. Closed within a month and was a very smooth process. I’m very thankful I waited and dealt with Freedom.Thanks FHB!!

I used to be a recruiter and my trust for sales people has always been skeptical at best. When I was first contact by Freedom Home Buyers I was already on guard. Then, I noticed that the tone of the conversation was not to sell me dreams with fine letters but to listen to what I really wanted out of the deal. Right then on our conversation we set a price based on each other's word and the opportunity to verify the details of the house two days later. Since everything I said matched our conversation, there was no haggling when we met. We just sign the contract stating the conditions of our agreement and about 30 days later we closed. It was that simple; that easy. My recommendation, do your homework; then, give them a call. You will second my experience with you own. Be honest upfront and you'll get exactly what you are looking for; at least that was my experience with them. I definately recommend them. Ask for Melanie, she is awesome!

We had received numerous calls and letters regarding our property. One of the calls was from a man named Cooper. He told us that we would not have to do anything to sell the property. He just asked what our bottom line was. Within a few weeks our property was sold and we have our money.Cooper was highly professional, answered all our questions and followed through on everything. We would highly recommend him for your real estate needs!

I got tired of trying to ready my house to sell. I contacted F.H.B. just to see what they were all about. Shawn Hooker was in touch almost immediately. We set up a time to talk. He made a reasonable offer then and there. I could've made more money if I had finished the house but the offer was reasonable and certainly higher than I expected. We closed in 15 days. I'm so glad I did this, the headache is over. I appreciate Shawn and everyone else that got this done so easily.

The sale of my parents home went easily and smoothly with Freedom Home Buyers. The title company they use was also professional and on top of everything. The entire transaction from start to finish was easy and quick, and Kristen DeCarlo who we met and ironed out the contract with was such a pleasure to work with.

I got tired of trying to ready my house to sell. I contacted F.H.B. just to see what they were all about. Shawn Hooker was in touch almost immediately. We set up a time to talk. He made a reasonable offer then and there. I could've made more money if I had finished the house but the offer was reasonable and certainly higher than I expected. We closed in 15 days. I'm so glad I did this, the headache is over. I appreciate Shawn and everyone else that got this done so easily.

I used to be a recruiter and my trust for sales people has always been skeptical at best. When I was first contact by Freedom Home Buyers I was already on guard. Then, I noticed that the tone of the conversation was not to sell me dreams with fine letters but to listen to what I really wanted out of the deal. Right then on our conversation we set a price based on each other's word and the opportunity to verify the details of the house two days later. Since everything I said matched our conversation, there was no haggling when we met. We just sign the contract stating the conditions of our agreement and about 30 days later we closed. It was that simple; that easy. My recommendation, do your homework; then, give them a call. You will second my experience with you own. Be honest upfront and you'll get exactly what you are looking for; at least that was my experience with them. I definately recommend them. Ask for Melanie, she is awesome!

Blaine and Freedom Home Buyers were great. They helped us with selling our house when it got struck by lightning which caused fire damage. Even though we had to work through kinks of holidays, the process was relatively fast. Most importantly, they have us the best price of any other company by far! And we got a lot of other quotes. Thanks guys.

We had received numerous calls and letters regarding our property. One of the calls was from a man named Cooper. He told us that we would not have to do anything to sell the property. He just asked what our bottom line was. Within a few weeks our property was sold and we have our money.Cooper was highly professional, answered all our questions and followed through on everything. We would highly recommend him for your real estate needs!

The process with Blaine was a pleasure.I had a problematic tenant that had stopped paying me rent in a house I wanted to sell. Taking advantage of the eviction delays. While the tenant was there I had numerous low ball offers from investment groups and even had a contract that fell thru a day before closing after they kept calling me to lower the contract price. Thru all of that Blaine kept in touch with me and told me he had an offer when the tenant was gone. A day after the tenant moved out I met with one of Freedom’s team members and we agreed on a great price and signed a contract. Closed within a month and was a very smooth process. I’m very thankful I waited and dealt with Freedom.Thanks FHB!!
