Probate Property Services

Usually, the most valuable asset of an estate is the property; this is why it is so important that the probate is handled correctly. At Blanchard’s Inheritance, we have the experience and knowledge to deal with these properties.

We can take on the burden of dealing with an empty probate property in the UK. We will provide an accurate valuation and can put the property on the market or to auction and the sale thereafter.

Blanchards can also deal with the property management up until the completion of sale; this includes arranging insurance, maximising security, and making sure the property is fit for viewings.

Probate Property

What is it? – We deal with the empty property for the Legal Sector. Blanchards will clear he property of all the items inside and insure them against fire, damage, and theft.  We also secure the property, have it valued and put it on the market or for auction for you.

Why do we do it? – Probate properties need securing from squatters. Probate value is a legal requirement. Its an essential service for a good price.

Do we charge? – Yes we charge 4% of the sale price as a handling fee.

How long does it take? –  This is depending on each case. If the house is in a very poor condition it could take a few days to clear, then secure. We use a third party for property valuation. In total, it may take up to 4 weeks for the more serious cases.
