Sometimes just trying to stay balanced while coping with what has happened can drain all one’s energy and focus. For those handling the estate of a loved one, it adds another emotional and administrative layer, particularly if the home is full of accumulated possessions from years past that need to be sorted and dealt with.
“Grief” can affect our ability to deal with stuff, something we may not understand until we experience a major loss, possibly the loss of a life partner, parent or the key person in our life:
- How grief can slow us down, both physically and mentally, reducing our ability to focus and concentrate, affect our motivation and thus our ability to make decisions and get stuff done.
- Around the home this can result in an untidy home, failure to maintain cleaning, clearing and organising habits – thus stuff piles up, little by little, year by year.
allsorters regularly assist with planning, sorting, clearing and preparing homes for sale or settlement on behalf of families, beneficiaries (local, interstate or overseas), executors, lawyers, real estate agents and other representatives (who maybe overwhelmed by the task, find it emotionally challenging, not have the time to deal with it, live remote to the property or just not know where to start). We also provide impartial assistance for sorting estates in dispute.
Where to start?
- After an initial telephone discussion to clarify objectives and the level of care required, Mary often visits the property to identify priorities, agree on a Plan of Action and provide a Fee Estimate (please check if we provide free fee estimates in your area)
- Nearly every client we work with/for is different, so we offer a customised service.
- We strive to minimise costs wherever possible and often come in under our Fee Estimate.
