Probate Property Services

For residential and commercial properties across Kent.
The sale of Probate Properties need to be handled sensitively and diligently and we have a vast amount of experience in this area. Our probate property service in Kent and Medway is designed with this in mind. The process can be complicated and we appreciate that these matters need to be handled sensitively and sympathetically. We have great relationships with Probate Solicitors across Kent so we are able to connect you with the right people at the very start of this difficult process and can advise you through the process.

Valuation by experienced Estate Agents
Our probate service starts with an initial free of charge discussion with a member of staff who will assess your situation and requirements, then guide you on the best way to proceed. If necessary they will carry out a Probate Valuation and supply a detailed report with recommendations for marketing.

Please call us on 01227 931860 to arrange a free, no obligation consultation.

Valuation Report
We will provide you with much more than a standard valuation for Probate Purposes. We will also provide advice around any works required, how to maximise the value of the property and a rental valuation should you be considering keeping the property.

House cleaning, clearance and maintenance
Empty properties need to be prepared for sale or letting purposes. Our property management and maintenance team can undertake clean up work, maintenance, boiler and heating work and anything else required. We don’t have a “one size fits all” service so please do not hesitate to ask us for a bespoke service to suit your requirements.

Marketing and sale guidance
We will advise on the best marketing methods to maximise the sale price achieved for the beneficiaries. We are able to offer standard sale by Private Treaty and we also work with auction partners which may be appropriate in some circumstances. We often achieve multiple offers for probate property with a best and final offer procedure maximising the value achieved.

Single point of contact
We are able to act as agents for the executors in our probate property service in Kent and Medway and handle the whole process for you along with our professional partners such as solicitors etc.

The Rental potential
On some occasions the executors may choose to keep the property in the family and let it out. We operate a very successful Lettings and Property management division with all property management being handled in house. We are also able to act for overseas landlords. If you wish to retain the property speak to us to find out more about this.

Meter Readings, key holding and empty property management
We can read the meters and act as key holders throughout the sale process. We also offer an empty property management service.

Production of an EPC
All properties that are to be sold or let will require an up-to-date Energy performance Certificate (EPC) – We will organise this and supply copies and links to the required parties.

Garden tidy plus regular garden maintenance
We are able to organised a garden clearance or tidy up and then regular ongoing maintenance to keep the property in a manageable state and looking its best.

Assessment of Planning Options
Probate properties often offer opportunities for extension or redevelopment; on some occasions there could be space for a building plot. We are able to offer a free planning feasibility study through our professional planning partners to find out the scope of any development potential.
