Property probate service

Deal only with specialists when instructing
our bespoke probate service

Property probate service – how it works:

Probate properties are particularly well suited for sale by auction. Generally, clients wish to sell the property as swiftly and efficiently as possible. Selling at auction not only facilitates a quick sale, meaning beneficiaries can receive their share of the estate quickly, it also provides the best possible price upon conclusion.

The process of selling an estate via probate is an emotional strain and worry for the family and beneficiaries, but is always handled with the upmost sensitivity and sympathy.

Our tailored probate service is carefully packaged to deal with every part of the process, taking away any stress or burden from the client.

We are able to maintain and manage the property, prior to sale, by ensuring the needs of the client, the property and insurance regulations. This sensitive time requires a trustworthy and knowledgeable team, while the key objective is to ensure the best price is received, in any given timeframe required by the client.

We deal with all residential and commercial properties, providing an immediate exchange of contracts and completion within 28days.

We sell residential and commercial properties with immediate exchange and completion within 28days.

For further information please call 01293 528575 or complete this short enquiry form and we will contact you at your convenience. All enquiries are in the strictest of confidence.

Valuation by an RICS Chartered Surveyor

Organised on your behalf, the service will begin with an initial discussion with Gateway Surveyors who will assess your requirements, then guide you on the best way to proceed. If appropriate, they will then carry out an Executry Valuation and supply a detailed report with recommendations for any potential sale. To receive a 10% discount please quote ‘Connect UK Auctions’ to Gateway Surveyors via telephone or email communication.

Our service covers the following:

  • INSURANCE We will arrange for weekly property visits and provide a record for the insurance company. This is very important as a property vacant for over a month may void the insurance premium.
  • LOOKING AFTER THE PROPERTY We are able take meter readings when required and act as keyholders.
  • CONTENT DISPOSAL For disposal of unwanted furniture and chattels we have internal links with auctioneers who can provide an independent valuation, followed by a cost-effective removal and sale of all unwanted items. Prior estimates will be supplied and, if needed, a full and complete clearance carried out.
  • CLEANING A cleaning service is readily available to prepare a property for sale.
  • GARDEN MAINTENANCE If needed, we have contractors to ensure the externals of the property are well presented.
  • METHOD OF SALE Professional advice will always be given. We will advise on the best method of sale, depending on the property. Whether this is by auction or by informal tender we will always be here to discuss all options.
  • ONE TO ONE CONTACT During the process you will never be left in the dark. Communication with the client/ family is paramount. You will be given your own personal probate contact to aid you at all times, through such a difficult period.
  • EPC All properties will require an up-to-date Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) - We will organise this and supply copies and links to the required parties if appropriate.

“The choice between auction and conventional sale with its risk of a potential chain was made clear, after a discussion with Connect UK Auctions. The options were all fully presented and options fully explained; this was of great benefit to those not used to the property market. The legal pack was prepared by a solicitor instructed through Connect UK Auctions with the same solicitor handling the sale process on my behalf through exchange of contract at auction to completion. I was most impressed by the service provided by the staff who were at all times patient, polite and most willing to assist in all aspects of the process. My property achieved a very good price at auction and completed in a matter of weeks. I would, most certainly recommend their services to anyone potentially looking to sell their property.” Mr Richardson
