Probate Valuations Sussex

If you require a probate valuation Nicholas Muston are an independent firm of RICS accredited valuers based in Sussex that specialise in probate valuations. We also undertake jewellery valuations and cover a wide range of other items for valuation, including antiques, paintings, furniture, silver, watches, porcelain and collectors items for probate, sale, and insurance purposes. Professional and vastly experienced in our field, we provide a fully confidential service and always remain sensitive to the needs of our clients, whatever they may be.

If you live in either the West Sussex or East Sussex area and have need of an expert valuation, we can assist you. For jewellery valuations, we undertake home visits in Sussex, and can broker a sale direct to a jewellery collector, dealer or via the most suitable auction room to achieve the highest price for your jewellery on your behalf.

We also regularly undertake probate valuations in Sussex, 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 work is HMRC compliant and undertaken sensitively and discreetly by a RICS qualified and accredited art and antiques valuer.

In addition, we advise executors and trustees on 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 also can deal with the house clearance of the residual items.

Our extensive network of contacts, both nationally and within Sussex, will ensure that your items are exposed to the right buyers to achieve the very highest prices.

As a professionally accredited firm we are regularly recommended and instructed by solicitors, accountants and insurance companies. Our involvement with high net worth insurers includes Dual, Hiscox, AIG and Axa.

We have many testimonials and recommendations from our clients, and you can view some details of a few of these here: https://antiquevaluations.co.uk/success-stories/

So, if you’re based in the Sussex area and need our help, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

I discovered this pair of Castellani bracelets on a routine probate valuation in Hove, amongst a group of costume jewellery. The family had no idea what they were or where they had come from.
Fortunately I knew exactly what they were and entered them into a Bonhams auction where they sold today for £30,000 plus buyer’s premium.
Made circa 1865 in a Byzantine style they are set with sugarloaf and cabochon sapphires and each is marked on the reverse with the interlocking CC mark.

Another Louis Vuitton trunk sold on behalf of a client to a private collector. This time a wardrobe trunk complete with drawers and hanging rail. A few condition issues but it is going to be sent to France for a first class sympathetic restoration. No more than it deserves.

Alfred Daniels, 1966. London street view near Charing Cross; oil on canvas; signed and dated; 70cm x 90cm.
A great looking painting in lovely original condition that I saw on a probate valuation this afternoon.
Daniel’s was once described as a “Lowry for Londoners”. Born in Bow in the east end of London he studied at the Royal College of Art. In the 1960s he taught at Hornsey College of Art.

I always enjoy walking in London because you never know what architectural gems are just around the next corner. This is the Royal Arcade in Albermarle Street which was built in 1879 and is opposite Brown’s the oldest hotel in London.
