Is selling a property after probate taxable?

This depends on a number of factors. These include who lived in the property, who is planning the sale (a personal representatives or executor) and whether that person already owns a property. Upon a sale, the estate may be liable for Capital Gains Tax, or there may be a case for main residence exemption. Working out what tax is due when a probate property is sold can be a complex matter but Open Property Group can talk through your situation and offer advice.

Is probate required to sell a property?

Despite having a will, it is crucial that probate is obtained after someone’s death. Without probate, you almost certainly have no legal authorisation to sell a property. The only exception may be if your name is already listed on the title deeds. If there is no will, a grant of letters of administration have to been obtained - the equivalent of probate - before a property can be sold. A property can be advertised for sale before probate is secured but it can't complete until probate is obtained.
