Can I Sell a House During Probate?

Can I Sell a House During Probate in Florida?

The quick answer is: Yes, you can sell a house during probate in the state of Florida!  Selling a house during probate is indeed possible, although it involves specific legal procedures and court approval.

  • When an individual passes away, their estate, including any real estate they own, enters into probate, a legal process overseen by the court. A court approval is needed, which typically involves a complex process that includes filing a petition, detailing the reasons for the sale, distribution among heirs, etc.
  • Once the court approves the sale, the executor or administrator can proceed with selling the property. Everything is subject to court supervision. With a confirmed buyer, the sale is then presented to the probate court for final approval before the transaction is completed.
  • While selling a house during probate is possible, it’s a complex process that requires compliance with legal requirements and court oversight. Executors or administrators often work closely with legal professionals and real estate agents to navigate the intricacies of probate sales and ensure a lawful and fair distribution of the deceased’s assets.
