We Save Time and Money to Close an Estate
By: Jane Barnes
Many estates' will take 1 to 2 years to close and it is not uncommon to take as much as 3 years.
If you are not used to closing out an estate, trial and error can extend the time needed to insure all business is completed.
A professional can save you time, emotions, and money. Matters of Estates have had customers ask us about what we charge after the fact, only to find out that they had to take many weeks off from their jobs to close out the estate. Estates do not pay for missed wages and it costs
more than it would have been if you would have hired a personal representative. If you hire a professional, their costs are covered by the estate.
You will save money by not extending the estate, and closing it out sooner. An example of saving you money would be closing out your electric, phone, security, and homeowners fees immediately. Matters of Estates has a reliable list of attorneys, accountants, realtors, and all other professionals that are needed to complete your business in a timely manner.
A personal representative, many times assumes the legal council will handle many of the issues that arise, only to find out that it is the responsibility of the personal representative and they are not sure where to begin.
Matters of Estates works closely with your legal council and the personal representative, to ensure this transition will go smoothly and completed in timely manner.
The New Year is a good time to move forward, and put this business to rest. As you move forward, remember the good times that you've had with your love ones, and do not stress with the estates, just count on Matters of Estates to be there for you during this time of loss.
