We often find people wonder if probate paperwork is different from paperwork in a traditional transaction. In California, probate paperwork is different. One big difference is that with a probate home for sale, the sellers usually haven’t recently lived in the home. In a traditional home sale, the homeowners have a good idea of the home’s issues. So, the seller has to disclose defects. So probate paperwork comes with special disclosure forms to take into account that the sellers may have no idea what, if anything, is wrong with the home.

Probate paperwork is complete with these special disclosures, special listing agreements and special purchase contracts. The California Association of Realtors uses standardized probate paperwork that is different from paperwork involved with a traditional sale.
