Solicitors across the UK are struggling to sell probate properties as estate agents restrict viewings and cut back their services due to staff shortages.
This is leaving families in a difficult position where they are unable to sell their loved one’s home during these tough times, but online property sales website Probate Property Hub believes that technology may offer a helpful solution.
Launched a few months ago, the website dedicated to probate sales has seen a significant rise in investors looking for properties and believes that its digital approach offers the ideal solution to law firms and their clients.
Shaahid Quinn, Operations Manager at Probate Property Hub, said: “Everyone is very concerned about the ongoing coronavirus outbreak and estate agents are being sensible in restricting viewings to protect their staff and customers.
“Unfortunately, there are still lots of families out there who are trying to sell the homes of their loved ones as part of the probate process, who are now finding out that they are unable to market their property properly to due to this unfortunate series of events.”
Shaahid said that sites like Probate Property Hub, which had a large pool of prospective homebuyers, offered the ideal solution as people could view properties online and make offers without having to meet face-to-face.
“By using technology, we can provide an in-depth appraisal of a home, including a room-by-room tour and a wide range of information to help the sales process,” said Shaahid.
“This means that solicitors seeking a quick sale can use sites, such as ours, to help facilitate sales where a traditional estate agent may not be able to during this period.”
