I know but it isn't any use to her now is it? I will have to wait for probate, as it can't be sold yet. I am also looking to buy her house but that may be a little more expensive. :D
I was just amazed how cheap these cars are. I know they ain't exactly desirable but it's an old Astra underneath (I think) so should be OK.
You say I'm a PITA as if it's a bad thing.

when my mum passed away her car counted as personal chattel, and therefore could be sold or disposed of without waiting for probate. as it was, i gifted it to a family friend almost immediately. the value of the car was included in the probate calculation, but the car was long since gone when probate was eventually granted (which was ~15 months after my mum passed away).

You'll certainly have to wait until probate before you can legally be sold the house.

I would make a great used car salesman. I wouldn't make any money, though, as I wouldn't sell a car that I would not be happy with myself and those are very few and far between. :(
