I happen to be an executor of my recently deceased mother’s Will, with a house in Furzedown which is to be sold. The house has never been registered at HMLR and I'm told that many estate agents will insist that it is in place before they will move forward. What's the mechanism for this?
In the circumstances that you have set out it seems advisable to apply to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs.

You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
