Personal Property Inventories for Individuals, Executors & Beneficiaries

While estate planning primarily focuses on the disposition of financial assets, for individuals with significant or valuable personal belongings, it makes sense to plan for the disposition of your most important property too. An inventory clarifies your wishes and consolidates all critical information about your property in one place. 


Unfortunately, we’re not all proactive. One of the most difficult tasks after the death of a loved one is dealing with the contents of their home. Everyone amasses personal property, and the inevitable first step is what to do with their “stuff.” It’s difficult figuring out where to begin, who will help, and what to do with it all. An estate inventory is a powerful, efficient, and effective tool for executors and beneficiaries managing these decisions.
