Inheritance Tax (Probate) Valuations
Probate valuations are provided at an ‘open market’ basis in accordance with Section 160 of the Inheritance Tax Act of 1984, with items over the £500 threshold listed individually and the remainder placed into more general ‘global’ listings. Where required, we are happy to assist with the identification of specific bequests.
Following your initial enquiry, details about the appointment will be taken and, if necessary, a valuer will call you back to discuss your requirements. One of our valuers will be booked to attend your property to value either selected items or the complete house contents, as instructed.
A fully researched typed valuation will be produced (with illustrations if requested) and sent to you within two weeks of the date of the appointment.
Extra copies for co-executors can be provided at no extra cost.
