Different contributor here. Please permit me to assist. You asked:
I am the "Personal Representative" not executor. There is a diffence. We should not have to go through probate. The house will be listed for $95000. My question is does the State of Idaho need to certifiey me?
A: A personal representative (PR) is appointed by the probate court via letters testamentary to act on behalf of the decedent's estate. ID Stat. 15-3-715(23) authorizes the PR to sell, mortgage or lease
real estate of the decedent. If you have letters from the court, then you are the official PR, and no other certification is necessary to sell the property.
Hope this helps.
