My last blog post focused on how title to real estate passes after death of the property owner. This post will focus on the power to sell real estate after death. The main issue related to the sale of the decedent’s real estate is whether the Executor of the estate possesses the power to sell or the authority to sell. The source of the power will typically be either express or implied.
