The personal representative is required to file a report of the sale and petition the court for confirmation of sale within 30 days after acceptance of the offer unless acting under IAEA full authority (Cal. Prob. Code § 10308). If the representative refuses or fails to do so within the 30 day period, the buyer may proceed to file the report and petition the court for confirmation of the sale. The buyer, of course, should consult a personal attorney if the buyer feels it is necessary to petition the court. (Cal. Prob. Code § 10308).
