Probate Valuations Kent
Nicholas Muston Antique Valuations are an independent firm of professionally RICS qualified valuers serving the County of Kent, including the towns of Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Canterbury and Tonbridge. Our team are experts in probate valuations and jewellery valuations in Kent. We cover a wide range of items for valuation. Examples include antiques, artwork and paintings, jewellery, silver and gold, coins, medals, stamps, Chinese porcelain, collectors items and many more. We carry out valuations in Kent for the purposes of probate, sale or insurance.
Our vast experience and excellent reputation draws many discerning clients to us, and we in turn provide a fully confidential probate valuation and jewellery valuation service to our clients in Kent. Needless to say, we remain sensitive at all times to your particular situation and specific needs.
We can visit your home anywhere in Kent, should you require a valuation of jewellery. We are able to broker a sale direct to a jewellery collector, dealer or via the most suitable auction room available. Our aim is to ensure the best possible price is achieved for your jewellery. As we are a totally independent firm, we have the freedom to recommend the best place to sell to maximise the value. This depends on the items in question and might be via auction or a private sale which can be brokered to a collector, museum or dealer. If auction is agreed as the best route to market then we do not charge, as our fee is covered by the auction house through an introductory commission.
We also regularly undertake probate valuations in Cranbrook, Maidstone, Orpington and many other towns in Kent, for solicitors, executors and beneficiaries. Our valuations of jewellery, antiques and chattels are done in accordance with Section 160 of the Inheritance Tax Act 1984. The valuations are undertaken sensitively and discreetly at all times, by a RICS accredited art and antiques valuer and are also fully compliant with HMRC. We also provide expert advice to executors and trustees in regards to valuations of chattels for Capital Gains Tax, the Acceptance in Lieu (AIL) scheme and Conditional Exemption.
Following grant of probate, we can arrange for the sale of some or all of the contents of a property either via auction or a private sale. We can also deal with any subsequent house clearance required, and ensure that the property is left broom clean.
Our comprehensive network of contacts in Kent will help to ensure that your items are made known to the right buyers at the right time, the aim being to attract the very highest prices achievable.
We are continually involved with high net worth insurers such as Dual, Hiscox, AIG, Axa and others. Many solicitors, accountants and insurance companies recommend our valuation services due to our professional accreditations, decades of experience and excellent reputation.
Achieving optimal results for our clients is critical to our operation, and we have received glowing feedback and kind comments from many clients in Kent and other areas, over the many years we have been in business. You can view some testimonials here: https://antiquevaluations.co.uk/testimonials/
