Probate Delays: How Proffered Can Help Speed Up the Sale of a Probate Property

Probate delays in the UK are at an all-time high. This can often be painstakingly inconvenient and frustrating for many seeking to sell homes inherited through probate. Luckily, Proffered can help speed up this process.

But before we get to that, let’s have a quick look at the effects of these lengthy delays:

  • A beneficiary must deal with long waits at a period when they’re still mourning their loved one.
  • Property sales might fail to be successful in the end.
  • Maintenance costs for the properties pile up the longer this process takes.

So, how can Proffered help?

Let’s find out!

How Proffered Can Help Combat Probate Property Sales Delays

Although expediting the probate process is beyond us, we can assist you in speeding up the sale of an estate, and here are some advantages of using us:

Short Timelines

Statistics reveal that, on average, probates take about 9.3 weeks from application to grant issue.

As a professional within the Wills & Probate departments of your law firm, you must be familiar with the various causes of probate delays which trickle down to the sales process, for instance:

  • Missing paperwork
  • Financial complications

Please note that this is just the beginning because putting the property on the market and waiting for offers, amongst other things, will also require more time.

Proffered can save you this headache by a huge margin. We only take as little as five working days to complete the sale of an estate!

High Property Value Threshold

Mortgage rates fell in October 2022, leading to high demand at the beginning of 2023. However, experts predict that selling properties in 2023 could be more challenging due to rising living costs.

And this is where Proffered comes in. We can help beneficiaries sell their probate property using our own funds, so they don’t have to worry about the tough market.

And no value is too small or too large for us to work with. We have bought and sold properties amounting to over £250 million.

Guaranteed Success

Selling a house can be very stressful. And this can get complicated if there’s a late-stage exit. Unfortunately, the money and effort spent on putting the home on the market go to waste since there’s never a guarantee that a promising buyer will go through with the deal.

Proffered takes all that stress away from you and your client. We offer tailored services that contractually guarantee a sale of their property at a set price. In addition, we let the seller pick the date they prefer, and we manage this entire process from start to finish.
