Dealing with bereavement and legalities after the passing of a loved one can be an overwhelming and emotionally challenging process. Among the necessary tasks includes organising a probate clearance. This comprehensive overview includes the essentials within the clearance, what to look for when hiring a company and the benefits of getting professional help.
What Are Probate Clearances?
Probate clearances are similar to house clearances however, probate clearances involve removing a deceased person’s items that are no longer needed. Family members of friends of the previous homeowner typically organise the clearance to ensure that items are delegated and provided to the rightful items based on the will.
As mentioned briefly above, dealing with the loss of a loved one can be extremely difficult. It can be even harder to arrive at their property and sort through their belongings due to nostalgia or fond memories. Instead of dealing with the intense emotions yourself, there are professional clearance companies such as ourselves at Greenleaf Clearance who can step in and manage the process for you. Clearance companies will manage the removal of waste, transport and disposal, saving you time, emotional stress and even money.
How Does The Process Unfold
In most cases, a solicitor or legal representative will hold the keys to the property after the homeowner has passed away. The clearance company, family member or designated friend will then have to clear away or keep any items or waste so that the property can be re-listed and sold. Once the space has been cleared, any items on the will should be sent to the new rightful owner.
