Having just lost a close relative or friend and being executor of the will can be a stressful time. Not only is it emotionally draining it is also very time intensive. The Hour Hands Probate Services can lend you an extra helping hand at this difficult time.
Potential buyers are easily deterred by tired décor and furnishings, as well as excessive quantities of personal possessions. With our Probate Services we can help executors through what can be a very emotional process. We can work with you to help sort through possessions; organising them into those you wish to keep and those that need to be disposed of. Alternatively we can manage the process on your behalf with minimal involvement for you. No doubt you will want to keep items of sentimental value – we can carefully pack these. We can also contact antique dealers, auctioneers, online sites to gauge interest in selling other selected possessions or organise any items to be donated to charity.
We can also help present the home for a fast and effective sale. Hour Hands provides advice and practical help on areas that may need updating due to wear and tear, source trades people to complete tasks, as well as staging the home for estate agents photographs and viewings.
Hour Hands Probate Service is aimed at executors, who want help with the sale of a probate house. Maybe you live away from the area, or find the process too emotional or are simply struggling to find the required time. We offer a professional and sympathetic approach at what can be a very difficult time.
The volume of paperwork involved with a probate property can be daunting and time consuming. As well as the paperwork associated with selling a property, there will be lots of additional household documents that need sorting. Our Personal Admin Service can help with this: we can categorise documents, scan papers you want to keep or shred unwanted paperwork.
