Our Simple four step process is used to prepare a property for its next phase.
Lifestyle Assistance’s services are personalised to the Executors needs. It is a busy time for an Executor and there is a lot of paperwork. We support executors with the property and it's requirements. Keeping it safe is our priority and we have a number of ways to do that. We document our work for your records and make sure you have all your receipts etc. Some Executors live abroad and so need a hand with the full four steps while others only need a hand with parts such as packing or getting trades and services in to get the house compliant for sale. We can assist with part or all of the following stages:
1. Perishable goods phase:
As the house becomes unoccupied, we come in and take care of pets and removing food and medications etc. We make sure the house is fully locked up and safe. We can assist with your asset register by taking an inventory and property report. Services such as Auctioneers can be sourced to assess the value of the household contents.
2. Packing phase:
The house and property is thoroughly checked, organised and packed. We take the time to check for documents required for probate and tax etc. We will keep aside items that appear sentimental and might be of interest to family. We give you peace of mind that everything has been thoroughly checked.
We will pack items for family members and can deliver/post them.
3. Dispersing goods phase:
We coordinate items being sold to Auctioneers, on the Internet, items going to donations etc if required. We have trades and services who can relocate items and we can coordinate donation collections so you don't have to wait around for collections. We can meet services for you and coordinate other tasks at the property at the same time to be as productive as possible.
4. Preparing the house for sale or rent phase:
Most often the house will be sold. We coordinate services such as cleaners, painting, plumbing, electrical and Real Estates etc. What ever you need to get the house ready for sale or rent. Getting the property tidied up can be a daunting task but we will make sure it is done with a minimum of fuss and make it ready to hand the keys to the Real Estate Agent.
