Any milage in the thought that there maybe someone out there who has a need for them, which might bring some comfort?I still have most of mum's clothes in the living room. I can't bring myself yet to get rid of them.It would feel like disposing of her. Like wise with her ashes.
A very good point, plus the point that @Banjomansmate makes - insurance companies insist that someone is there as part of the insurance T&Cs. Getting insurance for an empty house is a load of hassle and very expensive.If moved out before the house is sold or probate is through who's going to keep the house clean?
I can vouch for that! You are also required by many to drain down systems etc when winter approaches. Also full rate Council Tax can become payable - this depends on the rules of your local authority. So there is quite a lot to consider. Most think that a property will sell quite quickly but that isn't always the case.Getting insurance for an empty house is a load of hassle and very expensive.
