Solicitors and Executors are usually required to commission an independent open market probate valuation for the chattels belonging to a deceased estate.
We undertake such valuations in accordance with Section 160 of the Inheritance Tax Act 1984.
Our wealth of experience in this field, enables us to provide a 'one stop shop' to smoothly handle, from start to finish, probate instructions for what can be a difficult process for an Executor to deal with.
Our probate service incorporates:
The initial on site compilation of an open market probate valuation
The arrangement of carriage and clearance
The sale of these items at any of our auction houses in either our general, weekly, specialist, monthly or Country House auctions, whichever is the most suitable.
Every probate valuation is conducted by our Senior Valuer with the chattels consigned for sale both catalogued and auctioned by them. They also closely oversee the collection and clearance processes.
An Executor can be assured that their affairs will be comprehensively and considerately dealt with in a professional manner, ensuring every aspect is handled smoothly and in the best interest of the Estate.
We offer very competitive fees which can be agreed upon prior to the valuation being conducted. Please feel free to contact us for further information.
