Selling an inherited property can be emotionally difficult, especially if a loved one has just passed away. It is a sensitive time and if other relatives disagree with the decision to sell, the process can become even slower. We are here to support you on every step of the sales process and help you get the best value for your home.
Inherited houses are actually quite popular among home buyers as their prices are often attractively low. To sell your inherited home for the best price and as quickly as possible, we advice you to do the following:
First things first – transfer legal ownership to the family member assigned in the will or the next of kin. To get the legal right to manage the estate, you would need to become the probate or beneficiary.

Take care of any outstanding bills such as council tax and utility bills – Notify your council that the property is empty and unfurnished and make any final payments to utility providers. If needed, cancel any services which are unnecessary until the home is sold to its new owners.
Stage the house for viewings – carry out any necessary repairs and give the property a makeover. Clean the entire house, redecorate if necessary and replace or remove outdated furniture. Get rid off all clutter, artwork, family photos and personal belongings of the person who once lived in the property. We understand that its emotionally difficult to throw away your memories, but it will allow home buyers to easily imagine their belongings and new lives in the house.
