If you’ve just found yourself in a probate situation, you may wonder why some probate properties do not require court confirmation. Right? Thankfully, we have your answer. If a probate property is a trust sale, the sale may not need court confirmation. Also, if the executor or administrator of the estate was granted “full independent powers” under the Independent Administration of Estates Act (IAEA), the sale may not require court confirmation either.

Selling Without Court Confirmation

We discussed the Independent Administration of Estates Act (IAEA) in an earlier blog post. We also discussed being granted “full independent powers” or “full authority” in an earlier bog post. So, if the administrator of the estate has full independent powers, or full authority, she or he can list the property for sale easily. It’s obviously best to list the sale with an experienced probate real estate company like Sentinel Realty Partners though, because it’s still not exactly like a traditional sale.

Once the offer is accepted in this situation, the estate attorney sends out a Notice of Proposed Action stating the terms of the proposed sale to all the heirs.  They have just 15 days to object to the sale. If they don’t object, no court hearing is required and the sale can go through. If there’s an objection, then the parties are headed to probate court.
