The Independent Administration of Estates Act (IAEA) was enacted in 1987. It altered and streamlined how probate sales move forward. It’s actually multiple, related laws that let the personal representative administer most parts of a decedent’s estate without the court getting too involved.

Estate sales under IAEA are also called Full Authority Sales. This authority is granted either by will or by the court, if the personal representative petitions for it. Generally, this process starts as soon as the probate proceedings start, but a petition can be filed at any time during the process.

Obviously, if instructions in the will prohibit the process, the court can’t grant it. Similarly, if another interested party can show good cause for the authority to be denied, the court will reject the petition.
