I’ve Inherited a Property – What Do I Do?

Inheriting a property can be an overwhelming experience. There are several options available to you once the property has been transferred to you including living in it yourself, renting it out, or putting it on the market to sell.

Have you recently inherited a property, but you’re unsure what you want to do with it? Maybe you don’t live nearby so renting it out could be difficult. Perhaps you have no sentimental attachments to the property and would benefit more from selling it. 


What is Probate?

Probate needs to be applied for by any next of kin mentioned in a will so that they can claim the property and/or possessions. They can then transfer these into their name before keeping or selling them on.

What Documents Do I Need To Provide?

  • Death certificate
  • Original will 
  • NI number of the deceased
  • Property deeds
  • Mortgage information 
  • Bank or building society statements

You’ll also need to make sure that the property is secure and any insurance is up-to-date until you decide what you want to do with it.

Inherited properties are increasingly popular for buyers because they come with no chain in place and offer them the opportunity to refurbish and put their own stamp on the place. They’re also usually at a slightly reduced rate than other properties on the market because of this. 


How Can We Help?

If you decide to sell your property and don’t have the time or the inclination to sell via an estate agent, then we can help. We’ll buy your property, cover the legal costs and can even clear the house before selling it on if this is something you require. We won’t offer you the full price of the property, but we will offer you a fair price. This is a policy we have for every property we buy, not just probate properties. Our service enables you to get a cash sum in a timescale that suits you and it can take the stress out of the situation.

  • Guaranteed quick sale
  • We can clear the property for you
  • Best trade prices in the industry
  • All costs covered (inc. solicitor fees)

Circumstances dictated that I sell my two properties (one left due to bereavement) very quickly,as could not wait for traditional estate agent sale. I must say that the support and professionalism of this company is second to none (mention must go to Jo/Dan/Amy/Fiona-in order of when I contacted them). Did not quite get what I wanted but nevertheless cannot fault the way they handled the purchase process and all things considered am very satisfied.-MANY thanks to you all. Roy and Lyn

I am delighted that I asked The Property Buying Company to purchase my flat. From acknowledging the contract to completion, everyone with whom I was in contact was professional and helpful, while remaining very friendly. Calls and emails were attended to promptly.
