Settling an estate can be difficult and time consuming. If you are also grieving the loss of a loved one or live a great distance from the estate property, the process can become overwhelming.
Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services have been serving estate executors and trustees for over 50 years across Ontario, in particular in the Greater Toronto Area, Kingston and Ottawa regions. We recognize the unique challenges you face.
Let us be your trusted partner.
We can oversee all the tasks related to the house and its contents and estate appraisals. This includes the sale of real estate, distribution of bequeathed items, packing, shipping, disposition of assets, cleaning, property and yard maintenance, security issues and more. We also work with family members or beneficiaries.
The importance of completing estate appraisals given the requirements of The New Ontario Estate Administration Tax Regime that came into effect January 1, 2015 under the Estate Administration Tax Act for probate filing cannot be emphasized enough. Having all estate assets (real and personal property) properly appraised, helps get an estate trustee on the right track at the outset. When dealing with estates, Gordon's always provides true appraisals, rather than simple "opinions of value", which were more common historically.
You benefit when your estate is managed by one company. Our integrated approach to estate settlement streamlines the process, simplifies decision making and increases returns to the estate. You can mourn your loss, administrate the process and move forward without being pressured.
We can also recommend to you experienced lawyers, accountants, financial planners and any other service providers you may require.
Our goal is to make the estate settlement process as stress-free and convenient as possible, and we do that with knowledgeable staff and valued services.
