Selling a Property as an Executor

You've been entrusted to look after the affairs of a family member or friend and don't know where to start. It's a big job, and the responsibilities seem to be increasing. You probably have a lot of questions, and we're here to help. 

Where Do You Start?

As an executor, you have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the beneficiaries, meaning treating them fairly and equally. You're also obligated to administer the estate in a timely manner. Keep all documentation from conversations regarding the assets in case any beneficiaries ask the court to review and approve your actions. You may not have the time or capacity to take this on right now and you need the proper assistance or team to help you do this efficiently and correctly. Always seek the guidance of a lawyer for any legal advice.

Timing & Support

One challenge of selling an estate home is when to list the property for sale. In order to officially transfer title, there must be a Grant of Probate to give the executor permission to sell the property. While waiting, prepare the property for sale and engage a Realtor®, estate lawyer, accountant and anyone else you need to support your duties. 

The monumental task of packing, preparing and facilitating the dispersal of the home contents can be overwhelming. 

Transition With Ease can help the selling process move efficiently and offer a full service solution to minimize stress and maximize value.
