The Independent Administration of Estates Act (IAEA) lets the personal representative administer most parts of a decedent’s estate without court supervision. Estate sales under IAEA are often called Full Authority Sales. Still, the court can actually limit the authority of the personal representative.

If the court does limit the authority, then court supervision is needed for the sale of real estate property included in the estate. Obviously, it’s much easier if the personal representative has full authority, because then court supervision is only required under specific circumstances or if there are objections made to the Notice of Proposed Action.

Yet, if the court accepted the personal representative’s petition for full authority, then they can do all of these things at their own discretion without the supervision of the court.
