How much do you know about overbidding in California probate court? Think you can sweeten the deal with special terms? Nope! If you’re an overbidder in probate court, you’re going to have to purchase the property under the same terms and conditions as the person who made the original offer on the California probate property.

See, unlike in traditional real estate transactions, you can’t request or propose alternate terms in the hopes of getting the property. The only thing that will help you is by bidding more in the specified increment or more. People don’t realize that probate real estate in California works this way, so they are often unprepared. A non-probate transaction allows for negotiation, but a probate transaction doesn’t. What you’ll need is the necessary payment in the form specified made payable to the correct payee. Otherwise, you won’t even be able to raise the bid and you will lose the property.
