Inherited a house in New Jersey – Need an NJ Estate Attorney
Looking for an estate attorney in New Jersey? Do you have a house you just inherited and you’re looking to sell quick? This is the most common reason why homeowner’s seek out an estate attorney.
Here’s some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) from sellers who inherited a house and who were looking for an NJ Estate Attorney:
How can I sell my house that I just inherited?
In order to sell the home you just inherited, you must first see if you have the legal right to sell the home (ie/ Has an executor been appointed? Is probate required? etc.). It’s important to consult with an estate attorney for legal advice.
Is the process different than a regular home sale?
The actual process of selling your home does not change. The only difference would be if probate was required, in which case, once probate has been completed, the sale of the home can be finalized. Please note, we can contract to purchase your home before or during the probate process. We can set a flexible closing date so we can close as soon as the probate process is completed.
What is probate?
Probate is a legal process that takes place after someone dies. It includes:
- proving in court that a deceased person’s will is valid (usually a routine matter)
- identifying and inventorying the deceased person’s property
- having the property appraised
- paying debts and taxes, and
- distributing the remaining property as the will (or state law, if there’s no will) directs.
Do I have to go through the probate process?
No, the probate process isn’t always necessary. They are typically required if the deceased person had assets in their name alone. For example, probate would not be necessary if the deceased person owned assets with someone else in joint tenancy
Can I sell during the probate process?
Yes. You can sell your home during the probate process. You can even sell before the probate process has begun as I mentioned above.
