The easiest way to show how this works is with an example.
- Abby is a widow.
- She has two children, Bob and Carol, both adults and still alive.
- Abby owns an old modest home in Florida.
- Abby dies without a will.
- Bob and Carol are her heirs. The inheritance is split between them, 50-50.
- Bob and Carol didn’t probate Abby’s estate, so they don’t have good title to Abby’s home and can’t sell it.
- They would like to sell and get cash now.
Simple Discussion, Then an Offer
We talk to Bob and Carol and confirm they are Abby’s only heirs. We take about a day to research the property and Abby’s family tree. Sometimes this only takes a few hours. Then, we give Bob and Carol an offer, over the phone, to buy their inheritance rights to the property, with their title AS IS, for all cash, and us paying all the fees and closing costs. They agree.
Simple Online Form
We email Bob and Carol links to a simple online form where they confirm their agreement to our deal with just a few clicks. This can even be done on a smart phone.
We arrange for mobile notaries near Bob and Carol to meet with them to sign the documents. Depending on where they live and everybody’s schedule, this takes about a week.
Before we send Bob and Carol’s cashier’s checks to their notaries, we make copies of them and email them to Bob and Carol. The checks say right on them that we can’t stop payment on them. Bob and Carol can call our bank to confirm the checks are good.
The notaries call and schedule the signings. Bob has his notary come to his house. Carol meets hers at a coffee shop. In less than 15 minutes, all the documents are signed.
Cash at Signing
As soon as all the documents are signed, the notaries hand Bob and Carol their cashier’s checks.
That’s it. Bob and Carol have their money, in about a week, with no probate.
