Losing a loved one is never easy. The emotional strain, coupled with the complex legal processes, can leave anyone feeling overwhelmed. But don't worry, you're not alone on this journey.

Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty has released a comprehensive guide for families navigating the probate system in Maryland.

Imagine having a roadmap that breaks down the legal lingo and presents a clear picture of the ins and outs of selling a house in probate. That’s precisely what this guide from the firm does.

The guide provides a quick overview of the probate process, highlighting the role of the Orphans’ Court and how you can petition the court to start the probate process. It provides you with a practical step-by-step strategy to go from petitioning the court to selling the inherited property.

Probate is the legal process of transferring ownership of assets upon an individual’s passing. This process, as the guide explains, is overseen by the Orphans’ Court in Maryland.

In the guide, you will learn about the requirements for opening a probate estate, which involve petitioning the Orphans’ court and providing supporting documents, such as the deceased’s death certificate, to the court.

Once granted, the named executor or the court appoints one, in the absence of a will, who assumes full responsibility for the estate. According to the guide, the executor must obtain letters of administration from the court, which empowers them to administer the estate, including selling properties and other assets.

The guide further elaborates on other crucial aspects of the probate process, such as determining the fair market value of the property through an appraisal and the next steps needed for listing the house on the market.

Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty underscores the importance of enlisting the services of an experienced probate realtor. Working with probate realtors like Marc Cormier can help streamline the process, minimizing drawbacks and ensuring your probate property can be sold for the highest value possible and quickly.

Cormier states, "Losing a loved one is never easy, and the legal process that follows can add to the stress and complexity of an already difficult time. If the deceased person owned a house or other real estate, it must go through the probate process before it can be sold. This process can be particularly complicated, especially if you are not familiar with the legal requirements in Maryland."

You don’t have to walk through the probate process alone, the folks at Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty are ever ready to guide you through these trying times.
