If a relative or friend has passed away you will know it is a very stressful and emotional time. There can be lots of administration on the estate and applying for probate takes a long time. A property is generally the largest asset in a persons estate which is why more people are turning to private sales in order to settle the estate according to the will, quickly with the minimum of fuss.
A quick sale coupled with no fees means it is very straight forward for the executors and beneficiaries to know where they stand in relation to the estate meaning everyone can get closure.
