As we get closer to the holiday season we like to change direction in our newsletter. Talking about estate planning for eight months straight can get a bit tedious. We like to give tips for party planning or keeping pets safe during holiday parties. Hopefully its useful for you.
In this newsletter we are going to provide some tips for when you leave home on vacation. These tips should help keep your home safe while you are gone.
Stop newspaper delivery and ask the post office to hold all mail.
Do not let your answering machine tell the world you are on vacation and how long you are gone. An answering machine message that says “we are on vacation in Aspen till the 28th” is a bad idea. It will tell any stranger who calls that you are gone and how long you are gone. Thieves love that sort of knowledge.
