Probate or Inherited?

Page Sub-Title Here


Many residents of Beaumont, and the entire State of Texas for that matter, find themselves looking for information about how to sell an inherited house before probate. This is either because they have inherited a house through a will or have been named as executor in this document.

This is a situation that raises the need to find answers to several important questions. One of those important questions is "can you sell a house before probate is granted?"

Individuals who have inherited a house may not realize that it has to go through a probate process. They may attempt to put the house on the market for sale. If they use a Realtor to attend to this, an experienced agent will know that the house must go through the "selling a house before probate" process. This is in order for a sale to be legal.

Luckily, in Texas there are some controlled exceptions to this. There is an alternative to go through the standard probate procedure. This is using a process called "Muniment of Title". This is applicable when a will was left but there were no debts secured by real property. This alternative process is done by validating the will in a local county court. Once this court has approved the validation, property titles can be transferred to the beneficiaries.

I buy houses all over Beaumont and would love the opportunity to take that inherited house off your hands. I can make you a cash offer within 24 hours. All you need to do is submit your information using the form and in a matter of days you won't have to worry about that house ever again!
