Chesapeake Estate Services Inc.is an Annapolis company dedicated to providing sensitive andpersonalized assistance to families and attorneys settling an estate, orpeople making such major life adjustment as moving from a house into aretirement community or nursing facility.
Chesapeake Estate Services is of particular help when:
- family members do not live locally,
- the homeowner(s) needs help closing up the house and moving,
- the estate attorney or bank is named personal representative,
- the personal representative does not have time to accomplish everything associated with settling and closing an estate.
—When there has been a death, we work with the estate attorney orpersonal representative to liquidate estate assets. We also can providethe personal property inventory and appraisal legally required for theestate process.
— When you are downsizing, we help deal with a lifetime of personal possessions and can help coordinate your move to a new home.
— We set up and manage Estate Sales on site to sell items you or family members are notgoing to keep or move to the new home. If a sale is not possible onsite, we can coordinate other options for disposal of property.
— We take care of items that are not saleable, coordinating consignments, donations or disposal.
— We do not take a percentage of the proceeds; rather we charge by the hour as a professional service.— Usually, within 2–3 weeks of our starting in a house, it is completely empty.
