Inheriting a house isn’t easy. There’s the emotional aspect of getting a loved one’s home ready for sale — which likely includes clearing out his or her belongings and depersonalizing the rooms. Here are some ways prepare when inheriting a house.
1. Investigate the mortgage. There’s a good chance you’re inheriting a house that’s paid for. But maybe not, if it’s a retirement cottage. And even if the original mortgage was paid off, your parents may have taken out a reverse mortgage to cover expenses in their final years.
2. Discuss your plans with other relatives. Get all the options out on the table with family members. There may be a creative solution.
3. Give the house a physical. If you’re inheriting a house that hasn’t been upgraded in decades, get an inspection before making any decisions. The amount of money you may have to sink into the place just to make it insurable could determine whether you choose to sell it, rent it, or occupy it.
