Rhode Island Elder Law Attorney ~ Real Estate Services

Elder Law Attorney for Rhode Island, Eastern Connecticut and Southeastern Massachusetts

2020-02-17 sale1.jpg

Connelly Law Has Experience

Connelly Law Offices provides a full range of residential and commercial real estate services.  For more than 20 years our attorneys have handled real estate concerns whether related to a simple purchase to more complicated wealth management planning.


No matter how straight forward they may appear, all real estate transactions involve a certain amount of risk. Whether buying or selling a property or developing commercial real estate it is important to be protected from liability.

Our experienced real estate professionals can assist in downsizing estates, transfers and liquidation of assets through sales and auctions.  We also assist in more general liquidations of property.

Probate and Real Estate

Real property is often the main asset of an estate. The home may be sold during the probate process but only by someone with legal authority to manage the estate assets. The Rhode Island elder law attorney at Connelly Law Offices has assisted executors or has acted as the executor in the probate process and has sold hundreds of properties during the probate process in Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

We suggest the following during probate:

  1. Work with an experienced probate attorney and realtor knowledgeable with selling real property during a probate.  Connelly Law Offices has that experience.

  2. Have the real property appraised by a licensed real property appraiser to establish a date of death value.  Connelly Law can do this for you with our qualified and professional appraisers.

  3. Consider a market analysis to determine an asking price for the real property.  This analysis can be ordered and completed quickly by Connelly Law's real estate partners.

  4. Obtain court approval to sell the real property. Connelly Law can complete this process as soon as the law allows it.

  5. Make sure that all the beneficiaries are informed and in agreement with the sale of the home.  Part of our real estate and probate services includes this search and contact.

Rhode Island, Southeastern Massachusetts and Eastern Connecticut Elder Law Attorney

Rhode Island elder law attorney

Because of the involvement of the court, probate and trust sales have a vocabulary all their own.  Petitions requesting the permission of the court must be filed and approved before the house can be marketed. There are various disclosure documents required by the courts that are not used in other real estate transactions.  The staff at Connelly Law Offices is familiar with the real estate sales process and all of the documents required.  Whether acting as the executor or representing the executor, we can provide the services you need.
