What is a Probate Sale?

"Probate" is the court-supervised administration of a decedent's estate. The probate proceeding involves "proving the will" (if there is a will), appointing the personal representative, determining the decedent's assets that are subject to probate. More specifically, any property that the decedent owned or had an interest in at the time of death is collected into the estate and distributed to those entitled to it after all debts and expenses have been paid. Thus, the process of administering a decedent's estate is referred to as "probate" and is generally supervised by the probate court.

How is the overbid amount established?

When a property is sold at a court hearing there is open competitive bidding. It is important to understand that in order for there to be a court hearing, an initial bid has to be accepted and the attorney for the estate must petition to have a hearing date.

The minimum first overbid price is set by a statute in the Probate Code. That amount is 5% of the accepted initial bid plus $500.

Further incremental bidding is established by the presiding judicial officer at the hearing.
