Probate Property Services & Clean Out
In most cases, a probate is not limited to the legal administration of the case, there is typically also a property that needs to be emptied, cleaned, and sold. We have substantial experience with these situations, and have partnered with companies who specialized in exactly what our clients need to prepare and sell a probate property. We strive to make the probate process as simple as possible, and this extends to the process of handling the real and personal property of the decedent.
Probate & Trust Property Sales
One of the most complicated of duties for the administrator in a probate is selling the real property in the estate, and in most cases it is necessary. When selling a probate property, there are legal obligations for the administrator, as seller, to protect the integrity and value of the estate; these obligations can make for a difficult and complex real estate transaction. We have helped nearly every one of our probate clients to sell the estate property, and have worked with many real estate agents and offices. While we are happy to work with any agent if one is already associated with the case, on a majority of our cases we partner with Prolux Real Estate, Inc. to sell our probate properties.
Prolux Real Estate, Inc. is experienced in probate property sales and has the knowledge and expertise to ensure that legal obligations are met, with the proper paperwork completed and filed, notices given, and deadlines and standards met. It is important that the property be properly handled as part of the probate administration, mistakes or delay in the sale of the real property can cause larger issues or even disputes in the probate process. It is essential to hire a qualified and experienced real estate professional to assist in the sale of probate properties, which is why The Boutique Law Group partners with Prolux Real Estate, and why our team remains involved and accessible throughout the process to all parties involved.
