Legal Matters & Life Change Events

A personal asset inventory can help mitigate the financial loss and emotional stress created during a legal dispute and/or times of change in your life. Some examples of these situations are listed below with an explanation of how a home inventory can save you time, money, and emotional hardship.
  • Estate & Trust Planning

  • Probate

  • Mediation

  • Taking an inventory while dealing with the loss of a loved one can be overwhelming. Planning ahead makes estate and trust planning much easier and helps ensure that the owner’s wishes are fulfilled.
  • If you have children with someone other than your current spouse, you risk disinheriting them unless you plan properly. Protect the inheritance of these children when combining assets in subsequent marriages.
  • Decrease emotional stress and anguish for you & your family when faced with the loss of a loved one.
  • Provide comfort to your family and loved ones who (in the absence of an asset inventory) would have to struggle to put this information together AFTER you’re gone.
  • Marriage & Prenuptial Agreements

  • Civil Unions

  • Domestic Partnerships

  • Clearly identify and document who gets what after a divorce or breakup.
  • Protect property that you have accumulated prior to OR individually throughout the marriage.
  • Minimize conflict and arguments which frequently arise following a decision to split or get divorced
  • Feel more at ease in knowing that your affairs are in order.
  • Minimize money that may be spent and wasted on future court fees IF a decision is ever made to part ways.
  • Divorce & Equitable Distributions

  • Provide accurate, detailed documentation for discussing the equitable division of assets and liabilities with your spouse and/or attorney.
  • Save money on legal fees and speed up the litigation process.
  • Ensure a fair, impartial baseline for deliberation and settlement purposes.
  • Protection against possessions mysteriously disappearing.
  • More easily determine and substantiate your net worth.
  • Pre & Post Moving Inspections

  • Items are often damaged or lost during a move. Completing a full inventory prior to a move can be a great asset should you need to file a claim with your moving company.
  • Use your inventory list for the moving company to get a more accurate estimate of what your move will cost.
  • Your inventory list can also help you determine whether you need supplemental moving insurance in addition to what is offered through your moving company and/or insurance company.
  • Bankruptcy

  • The best way to protect all of your property in a bankruptcy is to let your attorney know about EVERYTHING you own.
  • Full disclosure is imperative – It is a crime to intentionally provide false or misleading information on your bankruptcy paperwork. This includes not listing property you are looking to protect.
  • Your home inventory listing can provide valuable assistance, along with a sense of security, in reporting and substantiating the fair market values of your personal and/or business assets.
  • IRS Documentation

  • Theft & Casualty Losses – In the event of a loss due to flood, fire, theft, or natural disaster, you may be eligible to write-off a portion of those losses on your personal and/or business income tax return. A pro-active home inventory will provide valuable assistance in the valuation process and help you ensure the maximum tax deduction.
  • Charitable Contributions – Tax deductions are also available to individuals who donate personal and/or business assets to charitable organizations. Home Inventory Me can help you digitally document those donations AND assist you with any of your appraisal needs.
  • Preserve Your Heritage

  • Record a permanent legacy for your family and heirs.
  • Document your heirlooms, valuables, and their history.
