If you’re going through probate, you may have heard of a probate referee. Have you wondered what exactly a probate referee is? The probate referee appraises the probate property. See, before real property is even allowed to be sold through probate, it has to be appraised. The appraisal is done by a probate referee. It’s just one step of getting through a probate property sale.

When the probate case is in California, the probate referee is actually appointed by the State Controller. The probate referee gets assigned to a particular case by the court clerk though. So, you have to use one, but you don’t really get to shop around for one. Plus, you have to pay for their services. Rather, the estate pays for their services. Probate referees get paid for their appraisal service directly by the estate. The amount the probate referee makes is usually a percentage of the appraised value. Given this, when a probate property doesn’t sell, you actually can request a new appraisal.
