Probate real estate refes to real property owned by the deceased that was not part of a trust.
When referring to the probate process, a probate specialist is a person experienced in dealing with probate matters. This includes attorneys and fiduciaries.
A probate real estate professional is a licensed real estate agent or broker with a specialization in the sale of probate real estate. A probate real estate specialist works closely with the executor or administrator of the estate.
The executor or administrator of the estate is the person with the authority to sell the probate real estate. Whether court approval is required before authorized to sell the property, depends on the authority granted by the court.
The authority granted to person under a power of attorney ends when the principal passes away. Probate will be required if the principal passes away with or without a will.
A probate in California can take up between 12 and 18 months.
If a person dies with or without a will, a probate will be required. If the total value of an estate is below a certain value, there is a possibility that probate can be avoided in circumstances where there is or is not a will. Otherwise, the only way to avoid probate is with the creation of trust.
