How soon Can I List with an Estate?
The Owner just passed away. How soon can I list the property for sale?
If there is a Will, then the Estate Trustee has authority to act including listing the property for sale from the moment of death.
If there is no Will, then you will have to wait until someone is appointed by the Court as the Estate Trustee. This could take several months. It’s not quick.
It should be noted that until there is a Court Order confirming the appointment in the case of an Estate Trustee with a Will, the conveyancing documents cannot be signed. This means that you could list the property, sign an Agreement of Purchase and Sale, however, you would have t wait for the Court Order before closing.
