Coping with probate

The loss of a loved one, be it family or friend, is so often an upsetting and emotional time for executors and beneficiaries alike.

At Gilbert and Cleveland, we have a long history of selling property in the West Sussex area and incorporate a considerate and sympathetic approach to this sensitive issue.

We can provide advice regarding the Grant of Probate, liaise with solicitors and advise on timescales, presentation of the house and clearance as well as a personal marketing plan designed to fully realise the property's potential and obtain the best possible sale price. 

A common misconception is that marketing cannot take place until the Grant has been received, however this is not the case as the Grant is only required prior to the exchange of contracts. 

Often executors do not live locally and will need an agent they can rely on to assist them from a distance, giving regular updates and property inspections to satisfy insurers, whilst removing any worries or concerns to help put the executors mind at rest. 

To find out how we can help please contact us to talk to a member of our team.
