Acceptance of a contingent offer is quite rare in probate sales. Acceptance of a credit offer is subject to court approval (Cal. Prob. Code § 10315). In addition, the court may also permit seller financing (by the estate) (Cal. Prob. Code § 10315). An offer with any contingency may be accepted by the personal representative, subject to court confirmation, which will usually require a demonstration of evidence that the property cannot be sold without the contingency. The personal representative may also consider accepting an offer with a contingency provided the prospective purchaser removes the contingency before the offer is submitted to court. Under IAEA full authority, no rules specifically prohibit a contingent sales contract.
