Independent Administration of Estates Act (IAEA)

There are times when probate real estate sales require court confirmation and other times the real property probate sale does NOT require court confirmation. So what determines if a property in probate requires court confirmation?

Under the Independent Administration of Estates Act (IAEA), the administrator of the estate can handle the decedent's estate without court approval. The authority to administer the estate under the IAEA can be given by the decedent's will or by the court upon petition by the personal representative. They have full authority to sell real property and not require court confirmation.
