Pdoc! DON'T FALL OFF THE LADDER!!!
As for clearing parents' houses - we cleared my parents' house when they went into residential care - siblings' contributions aren't always helpful My son and son in law were complete stars! Family heirlooms were distributed as per their Wills - some stuff went to auction, some to charities, some to tip. Boxes and boxes of 'precious belongings that they have no room or need for where they are, and important paperwork' reside in our garage!!! Can't get rid of it - it's still theirs - can't do anything with it - it's just taking up space and I can't get to anything of mine in there When one of them goes we'll have to access some of it quite quickly - it'll be chaos!
