Greek immovable assets

We are dealing with an Estate where the UK testatrix had two properties in Greece but no separate Will to cover them. She didn’t make any provision in her Will for the Greek assets but didn’t exclude them as not being covered by the Will. In the circumstances I understand the EU Succession Regs apply to the Greek assets.

The lawyer in Greece advises that rather than the Executor being able to deal with the Greek assets, all of the residuary beneficiaries (10 in total) would need to sell the property.

Does any one have any experience of dealing with immovables in Greece and whether there is any easier option than arranging for 10 individuals to deal with the sale of properties there?
