Selling Probate Property

Selling an Estate at Auction

The Allsop auction teams appreciate that handling the estate of a loved one who has passed away is often a sensitive process at a difficult time. Ensuring a simple and pain-free sale of your property can make all the difference.

We have a long and established track record of selling probate property throughout the UK. Probate properties are particularly well-suited for sale by auction as most people want to sell the property as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Selling at auction not only facilitates an efficient and quick process, meaning beneficiaries can receive their share of the estate within 20 business days, but it also facilitates the best price at the culmination of an extensive national marketing campaign.

Probate properties are also often in need of refurbishment and modernisation. Unmodernised / dated properties are always well received from an auction audience, often selling above the guide price to buyers looking for opportunities for renovation projects.

Executors / Trustees regularly use public auction for the increased transparency and national coverage they offer. The transparent way in which a property is marketed and sold ensures that the executor has fulfilled his/her legal duty to obtain best price.

In addition to our residential and commercial property auctions, we are experienced in handling the sale of small and large property portfolios and advising on the best route to market.

If you have a probate property to sell, we would be happy to offer our advice and recommendations on saleability.
