How to file Form GPCSF 13

Step 1 - Download the correct Georgia form based on the name and ID if applicable

Double check that you have both the correct form name and the correct form ID.

Step 2 - Complete the Document

Fill out all relevant fields in Form GPCSF 13, take a break, and then review. Probate and estate settlement processes in GA are long enough to begin with, and making a silly error can push your timeline even farther back. No thank you!

Step 3 - Have Form GPCSF 13 witnessed or notarized (if required)

Some States and situations require particular forms to be notarized. If you have been instructed to get the document notarized or see it in writing on the document, then make sure to hire a local notary.

Step 4 - Submit Petition Of Personal Representative For Leave To Sell Property to the relevant office

This is most often the local probate court where the decedent (person who passed away) is domiciled (permanently resides) or the institution involved with this particular form (e.g. a bank). Some offices allow you to submit forms online, other’s don’t, and we while we generally recommend going in-person to expedite the process, sometimes that simply isn’t an option.

It’s also a generally good idea to establish a positive working relationship with any probate clerk (unfortunately there’s enough people & process out there making things more difficult and unnecessarily confusing for them), so a best practice is to simply ask the probate clerk proactively exactly how and where they’d prefer you to submit all forms.

When Petition Of Personal Representative For Leave To Sell Property is due

Different probate forms or processes can require different deadlines or response times for completing the appropriate form.

While some steps in the process are bound to specific deadlines (like petitioning for probate, having to submit an inventory of assets, or filing applicable notices to creditors and beneficiaries), many probate forms or processes are not tied to a specific deadline since the scope of work can vary based on situational factors or requirements involved.

Either way, there are a bunch of practical reasons why personal representatives should work to complete each step as thoroughly and quickly as possible when completing probate in Georgia.

5 reasons you should submit GPCSF 13 as quickly as possible:

  1. The sooner you begin, the faster Georgia can allow heirs and beneficiaries to get their share of assets subject to probate. Acting promptly can also decrease the costs & overall mental fatigue through an otherwise burdensome process.

    Helpful Context: What’s the Difference Between Probate and Non-Probate Assets?

  2. In general, creditors of an estate usually have around 3-6 months from the time you file notice to creditors to file any claims for debt against the deceased’s assets. If they don’t, then that debt is forfeited (and more importantly, the executor won’t be held personally responsible). So doing this sooner means you have a better idea of who is owed what and ensures you won’t get a surprise collector months later.

  3. Not filing a will within 30 days (on average) could mean that the probate process proceeds according to intestate laws (laws that govern what happens to someone's stuff without a will) or is subject to unnecessary supervision by the probate court. And if you aren't directly related to the deceased (a.k.a. next of kin), this could also mean you lose your inheritance.

  4. It’s important to file any necessary state tax returns on behalf of the deceased or estate by the following tax season in Georgia. If you don’t, you could owe penalties and interest. This also includes any necessary federal tax returns such as Forms 1040, 1041, or even a Form 706 estate tax return.

  5. If a house in the State of Georgia is left empty (or abandoned) for a while, insurance can get dicey. For example, if the house burns down and no one has been there for a year, an insurance company may get out of paying your claim.

If you’re not using Atticus to get specific forms, deadlines, and timelines for Georgia probate, then try and stay as organized as possible, pay close attention to the dates mentioned in any correspondence you have with the State’s government officials, call the local Georgia probate clerk or court for exact answers regarding Form GPCSF 13, and when in doubt— consult a qualified trust & estates lawyer for that area.

An executor is named in someone’s will, and if the deceased didn’t have a will, then the spouse or other close family relative usually steps up to fulfill the role. If no one wants to do it, then a judge will appoint someone. 

The executor is responsible for the complete management of the probate process, including major responsibilities such as:

  • Creating an inventory of all probate assets.

  • Filling out all necessary forms

  • Paying off all estate debts and taxes

  • Submitting reports to the court and beneficiaries as requested

The Exact Text on Form GPCSF 13

Here’s the text, verbatim, that is found on Georgia Form GPCSF 13 - Petition Of Personal Representative For Leave To Sell Property. You can use this to get an idea of the context of the form and what type of information is needed.

GPCSF 13 [i] Eff. July 2021 PETITION OF PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE FOR LEAVE TO SELL PROPERTY INSTRUCTIONS I. Specific Instructions 1. This form is to be used when a personal representative petitions for leave to sell real or personal property pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 53-8-13, or when a temporary administrator petitions to show good cause for being granted leave to sell real or personal property pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 53-8-10 (b). 2. If the petition is by a temporary administrator, this form should be altered as follows: The term “temporary administrator” should be placed wherever the term “personal representative” or “administrator” appears throughout the entire form. Also, if the form is used for a temporary administrator, the final order may need to be amended, especially if the original order of appointment did not give the power to sell property. 3. With regard to paragraph 6 of the petition, a recent appraisal should be used if available; otherwise, a copy of the most recent ad valorem tax statement should be provided. If the appraised value or tax value is higher than the selling price, explain the discrepancy on an additional sheet and add a reference to this in paragraph 4 of the petition. In addition, if there is a sales contract, a copy of the contract should be attached as an exhibit and labeled appropriately. 4. In the event the assets are to be distributed according to a will, only the beneficiaries need to be listed in paragraph 2. In the event the decedent died intestate (without a will), paragraph 3 requires that a definitive statement be made to show to the court that the persons named in paragraph 2 constitute all of the heirs of the decedent and that there are no heirs of the same or closer degree according to O.C.G.A. § 53-2-1. Provide the date of death for any deceased heirs. The personal representative of a deceased heir is authorized to consent on behalf of that heir. [If you are uncertain how to determine the heirs of a decedent, refer to the “Heirs Determination Worksheet” available from the probate court or at www.gaprobate.gov.] Examples of such statement would be: (a) “Decedent was or was not married at the time of his death and had no children born, adopted, living, or deceased, other than listed herein”; (b) “Decedent had no other siblings half or whole other than those listed herein”; and (c) “Decedent’s brother who died previously had no other children born, adopted, living, or deceased, other than listed herein.” 5. Signatures of heirs or beneficiaries who acknowledge service must be sworn to before a notary public or the clerk of any probate court of this State. An attorney at law may acknowledge service on behalf of an heir or beneficiary; however, the attorney must certify that he or she currently represents that heir or beneficiary with regard to the pending matter and, in order to comply with O.C.G.A. § 53-11-6, the attorney’s signature must be sworn to as provided above. With regard to a power of attorney, the attorney-in-fact may acknowledge service on behalf of the grantor of the power, provided that the power of attorney grants such authority, the GPCSF 13 [ii] Eff. July 2021 signature of the attorney-in-fact is attested, a copy of the power of attorney is attached, and the attorney-in-fact certifies that the copy is a true copy and is still in effect. It is not necessary that all acknowledgments appear on the same page. 6. O.C.G.A. § 53-11-2 provides that a party to a probate proceeding who is not sui juris must be represented by a guardian provided that the Court may appoint a guardian ad litem or determine that the natural guardian, guardian, conservator, or testamentary guardian has no conflict and may serve. When a party to a proceeding in the probate court is a deceased heir whose estate has no personal representative, such post deceased heir’s estate may be represented in the proceeding by a guardian. If a guardian ad litem is necessary because a party is not sui juris, use GPCSF Supplement 1. 7. The service of this petition is in accordance with Chapter 11 of Title 53 per O.C.G.A § 53-8-13 (b). 8. Use GPCSF Supplement 2 if the Court determines it is appropriate to appoint a special process server. 9. Use GPCSF Supplement 3 when an additional certificate of service is necessary. 10. Exhibits should be labeled as “Exhibit A,” “Exhibit B,” etc. in consecutive order. The corresponding letter of each said exhibit should be inserted into the appropriate place in the form. 11. According to Uniform Probate Court Rule 5.6 (A), unless the Court specifically assumes the responsibility, it is the responsibility of the moving party to prepare the proper citation and deliver it properly so it can be served according to law. All pages after the notice regarding Uniform Probate Court Rule 5.6 (A) are to be completed by the moving party, unless otherwise directed by the Court. II.
