Probate. We Make It Simple!
Managing the Sale of Probate Property
Real property often comprises the bulk of an individual’s estate, whether it’s a family home or an investment property. The sale of real property through probate should, of course, be managed to the maximum benefit of the heirs even as it protects the heirs and the interests of the decedent. Local Probate Code is very specific in its instructions to both sellers and buyers.
