A useful method of preparing for a consultation in relation to succession planning, a personal assets record can assist you in gathering your thoughts together while also prompting you to detail what you own and list out where everything is so that your executors can find your assets more easily after you have died. This record might also be used in conjunction with a note of digital assets. However these records are of limited use if they are not kept up to date and a note of how they can be accessed is not left with your Will or readily (though securely) available for your executors.
