What is Probate Property?

If someone passes away and leaves property to you in their Will, this is known as ‘probate property’. You can also inherit probate property under the laws of intestacy – which means that even if the deceased didn’t have a Will, a house may be transferred to you if you are their closest surviving relative.

It is entirely up to you what you do with probate property in Liverpool. There are a range of options available to you – including selling, living in it, renting it out, or leaving it totally empty.

Liverpool has over 74,000 people aged over 65, which means that every year, hundreds or thousands of people will inherit probate property in the city. Sometimes, the house can be in poor condition – for example, extremely messy, or with broken doors or windows.

This can force you to either fix up the house or sell it in its current condition.

With the latter option, a cash house buyer like could be the ideal way for you to cash in on the property.

What to do with property after probate is granted in Liverpool

Once probate has been granted on a probate property in Liverpool, you have four main options available to you: sell it, rent it out, live in it or leave it empty.

You may choose to sell your house if it is far away from where you usually live, and keeping it would therefore be lots of hassle. 

If the property is in good condition, you could sell on the open market – but if it is in a terrible state, a cash house buyer would still be willing to take it off your hands.

By renting your probate property out, you can turn it into an extra income stream. This can be extremely useful from a financial point of view, although you will need to take on the responsibilities of being a landlord, which can be time-consuming and (occasionally) expensive.

You can live in the probate property yourself, if it is convenient for you to do so. 


If the entire mortgage has been paid off, or if you have always dreamed of living in Liverpool, then this could be an excellent option.

Finally, leaving your probate property empty can give you time to assess your options. Perhaps your future remains unclear, and you don’t want to make a definitive decision until you have greater clarity. Alternatively, you may need to consult with family members, but haven’t been able to do so yet – in which case, the house may lie dormant.
