Many properties that were sold during the spring selling season are nearing their settlement dates. Many older properties are empty and unoccupied with many belongings remaining. It could be that a family member has died or the home was sold to make way for retirement or caregiving. Settlement must be completed before the estate can be settled. This problem affects family members, loved ones, and executors. Many times our homes and those of our loved ones have many possessions that have been accumulated over the course of a lifetime. If they are downsized, these possessions can’t be moved to smaller houses. They must be removed from the property before it can settle.
