Hi and thank you for your question. In the future, you can request me to answer any further questions.
If you list "various items of silver, weight of xxxxx, and current value of silver per oz is xxxxx, total value of xxxxx, you should be fine.
as long as the value is accurate, that's all that matters. You can always amend if the trustee wants a more detailed list.
this will go on schedule B, with any available exemption on schedule C.
Thanks for your question, good luck.
isn't it the garage sale value that we would list, thats what the attorneys paper said when listing assets
For used items, like your couch and TV -since you really can't sell these items for much, but major assets like silver and precious metals, stock, bank accounts, CD's etc would be the actual value
if you get the items appraised, that would suffice for resale value at a jewelry store
do you have any other questions at this time?
If you do, I'll be happy to reply. Best of luck to you. Thanks
the pawn shop that buys silver will pay only about 60% of the value. If I have a couple written estimates do you think that will fly or will the trustee not except something like that?
yes, a written estimate should suffice.
