Probate InspectionThe probate process offers many unique oportunities that most people do not know about.
Before you call anyone regarding a probate property it is best to have a probate inspection performed on the property. This is before you contact an Attorney, Legal Document Assistant, Real Estate Agent, or an Investor. Why? Usually when you contact just one of these professionals they will let you know how they can help you. However, that is usually not the entire story. We have created a proprietary inspection process that will help you consider the benefits and drawbacks to each option. Then you can decide with more confidence if you want to contact an Attorney, Real Estate Agent, Investor, or maybe even just do the entire process yourself. We can help you.
When you order a Probate Inspection a professional home inspector will perform a thorough home inspection. Once the data is collected our office will come up with a cost or repairs estimate, an estimate of the current value of the property, and give you a list of options that best suit your situation:
1. How much money you can make and how long will it take if you sell the property in its current condtion.
This is usually the quickest option and you can recieve money in your pocket within 7 -10 days in many circumstances. There are many companies the will purchase the house for cash in an “as-is” condition. You do not have to clean it out, fix it up, or do anything to the house itself. This is an attractive offer for people who are interested in selling the house as quickly as possible and do not want to go through the hassle and time of cleainging out the house, contacting a real estate agent, listing the house, paying for expenses on the house until it sells, paying hefty real estate agent fees and then finally getting money if and when the house sells. This does not apply to all houses that are entering the probate process.
2. How much money you can make and how long it will take if the property must go through the probate process.
Not all houses have to go thorugh the probate process.
3. A step by step guide to handling the probate process with somone from our office. We work with a team of Attorneys and California Legal Document Assitants.

What does an LDA do?
An LDA is an experienced professional who is authorized to prepare legal documents for a client, but only at the direction of the client. In other words, an LDA is there to assist the “self-help” client handle their own legal matters without the cost of an attorney. Since even the best legal, self-help books can be confusing and overwhelming, your LDA can provide invaluable assistance with routine legal tasks, such as typing and filing the paperwork for uncontested divorces, bankruptcies, wills, and many other types of documents. Again, because an LDA is forbidden to practice law of any sort, they cannot make suggestions as to what the client needs done for a particular matter, or what forms that the client must file with the state or the other party to the action.
