As personal representative of a deceased estate, there is real estate which you are looking to sell. In order to do this, you will need a court order. How do you get such an order? In Michigan, there is a form known as the Petition for Approval of Sale of Real Estate. This is a State Court Administrative Office form, which can be found and printed by clicking here.

Most of these State Court Administrative Office forms are associated with Michigan Court Rules and statutes. The Petition for Approval of Sale of Real Estate form is no different.

The Petition for Approval of Sale of Real Estate form is associated with MCL 700.3415, which states:

Unless supervised administration is sought and ordered, each person interested in an estate, including a personal representative, whether appointed informally or after notice, may make 1 or more independent requests to the court so that a question or assumption relating to the estate, including the status of an estate as testate or intestate, a matter relating to 1 or more claims, a disputed title, an account of a personal representative, and distribution, may be resolved or established by adjudication after notice without necessarily subjecting the estate to the necessity of a judicial order in regard to other or further questions or assumptions.

The Application and Petition for Approval of Sale of Real Estate form is also associated with MCL 700.3505, which states:

Unless otherwise ordered by the court, supervised administration is terminated by an order in accordance with time restrictions, notices, and contents of orders prescribed for proceedings under section 3952. The court may issue an interim order approving or directing a partial distribution or granting other relief at any time during the pendency of a supervised administration on the petition of the personal representative or an interested person.

In addition to these statutes, the Application and Petition for Approval of Sale of Real Estate form is associated with MCL 700.3704 and MCR 5.207. These are accessible by clicking on the MCL and MCR number. To help you understand this form better, Darren Findling of The Probate Pro dives deep into this form.
