Selling a probate property?

The sale of a probate property can present challenges for both the seller and the buyer. For the seller it can be a difficult and stressful time with emotions running high. Add to that the necessary legal steps that must be taken, property valuation and handling of a sale for a property that didn’t belong to them, and it can all feel too much.

For the buyer it can be dealing with uncertainty as the executors finalise the paperwork and facing potential delays related to probate sales.

Here at Lune Valley Estates, we want to help you sell your probate property and make things as easy and simple as possible. Whether you’re an executor or solicitor we’re here to help.


As an executor, you have a great responsibility at a difficult time. You are charged with key tasks, one of which is property.

Your job list for this will likely include:

  • Finding a solicitor
  • Obtaining a valuation
  • Getting copies of the will
  • Emptying the property
  • Obtaining legal title
  • Submitting information to the tax office
  • Appointing an agent to sell the property

Achieving the above is no doubt a huge relief allowing you to feel some form of closure and grieve. The end of the paperwork and a great deal of time and work can also signify some happier outcomes such as inheritance set aside for children.

Unsurprisingly, therefore, what you don’t want is…

  • trouble finding a good and reliable solicitor who communicates well and has a handle on everything or worse engaging one who is slow and hard to get hold of
  • difficulty finding a good estate agent to value and sell the property
  • a property that won’t sell
  • forms, jargon and processes you don’t understand
  • the chaos of navigating multiple executors
  • an overwhelming amount of admin
  • a full-time job of chasing people
  • trouble locating the will
  • a seemingly never ending process that you didn’t choose

Sadly this can all too often be the case and this is where we come in. We have a dedicated probate service so we can help you through this difficult time. We have both personal and professional experience in the probate process and we’ll be with you every step of the way.

From the very beginning, we will walk you through the process and keep you updated and informed at every milestone. If you’ve chosen to appoint a solicitor we will work closely with them to ensure everything runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

This is your sale so we’re here to answer any questions you may have and we will discuss your timeline and pricing objectives from the outset. We are also here to help manage multiple executors.

We have a great network of partners who we will happily introduce you to as well, to help with the entire process so don’t worry if you’re not sure who to speak to.


As with all our properties, we use tailored marketing to attract the right buyers and actively approach buyers whose needs are well suited to your property. As Lune Valley experts we know the area inside out so even if you’re not local yourself you can rest assured your property is being positioned and sold by people with Lune Valley in their blood. We know the people, we know the properties and most importantly we can share the beauty that is living in this area like no other.

We’re available 7 days a week so you don’t need to hesitate if you have a question or concern and we are always looking ahead for any potential roadblocks so we can actively pursue effective resolution as early as possible to keep things moving.

If you’d like to discuss a valuation or sale of a probate property simply complete the form below and we will be in touch.


As a probate solicitor you no doubt have countless matters on the go at one time, multiple deadlines, non-stop calls from clients and executors wanting to be updated, and paperwork coming out of your eyeballs.

What makes this harder is needing to find an estate agent local to the probate property for valuation and sale, but not just any estate agent, an agent who will work with you proactively, communicate effectively, and is excellent at selling property.

If you can find one, your job gets easier, things can move faster, your client is happier, and everyone benefits. This can, in turn, grow the reputation of your practice and grant you referrals.

At Lune Valley, our approach is to partner with solicitors. To work together to create a better experience for the client and all involved. Through effective communication, we want to make your life easier and a joined-up approach can also help manage multiple executors during a tense and tricky time. Plus if you are out of the area you can rely on Lune Valley Estates to be your local and trusted experts committed to achieving the sale desired by all.

If you’re a local or out-of-area probate solicitor looking for an agent with experience and expertise in the Lune Valley please get in touch by completing the contact form and we’ll be in touch:
