Inheritance Tax Assessment (Probate) Valuations
An open market valuation is often needed as part of the procedure for obtaining probate when someone dies. We understand that this needs to be carried out swiftly and with sensitivity and aim to attend the premises of the deceased within forty-eight hours if required. We can, also, arrange for high value items to be removed from the property for safe keeping.

Insurance Valuations
Being properly insured is important and we offer a thorough service which is totally confidential. As well as producing a traditional written valuation, we provide a set of digital images of the principal items at no extra cost.

Open Market (ITA) Valuations                 1.5 % (+VAT) on the first £10,000 and 1% (+VAT) thereafter
Insurance Valuations                              1% (+VAT)

Fees for large insurance valuations are negotiable.

There is a minimum charge for all written valuations of £230 (+VAT).
