Handling a property which is in probate can be a bit of a minefield, especially if you have never dealt with anything like this before. Our advice is to try and not worry about it too much, as long as you have an estate agent who handles these sorts of cases on a regular basis and you have a solicitor who specialises in probate then it can all be handled with ease. 
You are looking to sell your biggest asset and want to make sure you get it right! There are lots of things you can do to make your house sell more quickly and sell for more money. 
Unfortunately, there are also a few things you can do which will delay the sale, cause you to lose money, and potentially give you a huge headache as well. We highlight the 3 biggest mistakes that we see people make when selling a property. 
The current conundrum in the property market is to whether to sell your house before Brexit or wait until afterwards. The Leicester property market is still very strong for sellers so listen to our advice below and see if it gives you a helping hand on what we think about Brexit and the Leicester property market. 
Having been built to serve the local hosiery industry in Leicester around the start of the twentieth century, Leicester's terraced housing communities have seen huge changes since then and now offer great opportunities to both owner occupiers and investors. 
Leicester has a mountain of semi-detached property, ranging from traditional 1930's bay-fronted semis to modern day versions on New-Build estates. 
Their value will vary dramatically depending on the size, condition and location within the city itself. 
The competition in the West of Leicester is rife! LE3 and LE4 semi-detached house prices are back on the increase but where is it more expensive to buy? 
Following the previous post about price increases in Northern cities, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is contradictory. And it is, to a certain extent. House price growth has indeed seen huge spikes in Leicester over the last 12 months, but if we take the last 3 months in isolation it is a much different story, with prices stalling and not moving up or down in the 3 months of December, January, February. 
Prices in urban areas across the UK are rising.....That's a bit of a sweeping statement but Northern powerhouse cities such as Liverpool and Manchester are on the increase, as is our mighty Leicester! Alongside Birmingham, those three cities are seeing average increases in excess of 6%. That's still someway behind Edinburgh which is currently tracking at growth of 7.7% on an annual basis, and has always been the jewel in the crown for the Scottish housing market.
