Clearing a relative’s property after they have passed can be an extremely difficult task both mentally and physically. Sorting through years of their possessions and memories can be daunting to have to deal with on your own or with other family members. But if you want to sell the house, it must be cleared and emptied for viewing. Perhaps you need a probate house clearance Brighton? This guide covers a few tips to help ease the process and transition involving clearing a loved one’s property.
Reading The Will
Before you begin any clearance-based planning, you should make sure that you have read the deceased loved ones will. This may include certain bequests and inheritance requirements that need to be adhered to. The will is usually organised and read shortly after the funeral. If you are unsure, consult a legal professional to avoid any family complications.
Planning & Preparation
After you have the knowledge of the requirements of the will, you can begin the hardest part of the job. It’s essential that you plan and prepare the clearance before entering the property. Clearing a property is not an easy process, you will need to go room to room sorting through items that are set to be kept due to sentimental values and items to be disposed of. Once you have collected all the items that will remain in your, or your family members’ possession, you will need to organise transport and appropriate disposal for clutter.
Consider Your Options
There are several options available to help ease the clearance process, the two main opportunities include hiring a SKIP or a professional team. Both options can alleviate the entire process and time spent on the clearance.
Hiring a SKIP may save you a lot of time and money as you won’t need to take trips back and forth from the disposal site such as a local dump or recycling centre. On the other hand, hiring a professional clearance company could help ease the grieving process entirely as they can enter the property and manage the entire clearance, transport and disposal themselves. Most companies will also clean the property after the clearance, so you can list the property straight away. All you need to do is inform the professionals about what you want to keep and they will do the rest. Find out more about how professionals can help here.
