Need Help On My First Probate Mobile Home Wholesale

3 Replies

Hey BP, I need your help!  I just got my first wholesale deal accepted. What do I do next? Its a mobile home that was inherited and the title is not in the executors name what has to be done for that to be transferred into the buyers name?  She lives 3hrs away and would like to have this process complete without having to drive out here, is this possible? And do I have to pay her money for the contract to be binding?

@Justin Westmoreland I beileve you're in Pennsylvania. I'm not familiar with all their rules around estates so I will just give you some general guidelines which should typically apply. 

It sounds like you're going to need to go through probate to get your co-party to have the authority to sell. The other option would be to have any existing heirs sign quit claim deeds releasing their rights of ownership to the property. Either way, I would suggest you talk to your closing attorney or a probate attorney in your state.

 Thanks for the info! I ended up closing this deal back in November.
