San Marco Probate
Closed on this 3 bed 2 bath on quiet Silverwood Lane in San Marco just after Thanksgiving. The home had significant probate issues which we helped the seller work out before we were able to close on it. It look a little over a month to draft and obtain signatures on all of the documentation required for clear titlebut our legal team worked diligently and we were able to close in cash and distribute the proceeds to all who had interest in the property.
How to Sell a Property that Needs a Probate
If you have a property with probate/title issues the first step is to contact a estate attorney; be sure to do your research and ask around, make sure the attorney is trustworthy and their pricing is comparable to others in town. In your consultation, be completely honest with the estate attorney about the exact situation with the will or lack there of. Probates go smoothly when everyone involved is in agreement, when siblings and estranged relatives are arguing over money, that is when lawyers are able to inflate their fees. Probates are cheaper and easier when all parties are in agreement.
