A Guide to Clearing the Deceased's Estate in Probate Situations

Dealing with property clearances in the context of estate and probate can be challenging, often intertwined with emotional and legal complexities. Taylors Skip Hire offers sensitive and efficient clearance services tailored to these unique situations. This guide aims to navigate you through the process, ensuring respect and diligence every step of the way.

  • Estate Clearance: Often required after a bereavement, estate clearance involves removing personal belongings, furniture, and other household items from the deceased's property.
  • Probate Clearance: This process usually starts after legal confirmation of the executor's right to deal with the deceased's estate, including property clearance.

Begin by making an inventory of the deceased's possessions. This step is crucial for both valuation purposes and to ensure important items are not inadvertently disposed of. Ensure you have the legal right or executor's permission to start the clearance process.

Set aside personal items like photographs, letters, and items of sentimental value to family members. Secure any valuables such as jewellery, artwork, and important documents like wills or financial records.

Choosing the Right Clearance Service

Depending on the volume and nature of the items, decide whether to opt for full clearance services or a more DIY approach with skip hire.
