The probate process for a house in Washington – don’t get shortchanged

Buying and selling of real estate is big business in any economy in the world. As a population increases, more houses are needed for people to live in and offices for people to work in. Despite this fact of life, real estate transactions can still be very risky propositions! Especially when it comes to probate property, if the prospective buyer doesn’t understand the probate process for a house in Washington DC.

So what is a probate anyway?

A probate is a legal way of administering the property of a deceased person (decedent) if the person never left a will or if the will had specific instructions on how his or her property was to be administered after they are dead. These proceedings take place in probate courts. Sometimes they can end up being the best real estate deals that any buyer or seller might get in Washington DC. 

How to begin the probate process for a house in Washington

The probate process begins after a person dies. Soon after this, the seller is expected to file a petition to settle the estate.  After the court send the seller a letter of administration, the seller can proceed for the sale of the property.   Note: It is important for the seller to familiarize himself or herself with the property to avoid being short-changed.
