Chesapeake Estate Services Inc.is an Annapolis company dedicated to providing sensitive and personalized assistance to families and attorneys settling an estate, or people making such major life adjustment as moving from a house into a retirement 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 the estate 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 not going 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.
