    Inheriting a property

    Inheriting a property 12th Jul 17 at 9:02 PM
    Is it strictly necessary for my husband's late father's house to be transferred into his name, and then on to the purchaser of the property?

    When my mother died a few years ago this didn't have to happen, the professional executors just transferred it into the names of the purchasers.

    It seems to be me to be double conveyancing fees, for very little point.

    Thank you - certainly no mention here of double conveyancing!

    No.

    Providing the Executer of the will has had Probate Granted, he can sell it on direct to the buyer. It does not have to be transferred first to the the Beneficiary. The Executer then distributes the cash (along with the rest of the Estate) to the Beneficiary (assuming all debts, mortgages, tax etc have been paid first).
