Selling a burial site

Q: My grandfather, may Allah have mercy on him, owns a land that was a burial site about 40 years ago. It was deserted but now the land is in the middle of the city and we want to sell it or make use of it. I want to know if it is halaal to do so.

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
