How long does it take to sell a probate house?

To sell a probate house can take months and there are far too many variables for example:


• Time of the year – often July and August people are on holidays and in September they are getting ready for Christmas (just 12 weeks away) and with High Street solicitors averaging 12 weeks to achieve conveyancing at best case scenario, many buyers tend to stay put until January or February.

• Condition of property – many first time buyers and even 2nd time buyers seek properties that do not need any work

• Availability of new build and other properties within close proximity – new build properties require just 5% deposit to purchase whereas pre-loved properties require at least 15% deposit.

Grant of Probate takes between 6 to 8 weeks, depending on your circumstances.

Sale of probate property can be a long process depending on size of property, condition and value.  Vast majority of issues have to be resolved, property looked after and then sold.  These can range from mediation between family members, after death of a loved one or agreeing who pays for the bills while probate estate is settled.  This process can be complex.  It often comes at a time of huge emotional strain for family members and the Executors involved.
