How to sell an inherited property
First, you must complete the grant of probate, meaning the legal process that transfers ownership of the property from the deceased person into your ownership (either by yourself or with other beneficiaries).
If the property is dated or in need of repair, it may be less popular with buyers, however undergoing costly and time-consuming refurbishments is simply not an option for many people and can often cost more money than it adds to the property’s value.
