Probate & Inheritance Tax Valuations of Chattels

Valuations for Inheritance Tax purposes, often called "probate valuations", are an important part of administering an estate.

Executors and solicitors are often required to commission an independent probate sale valuation of art, antiques, jewellery and personal effects in order to assess Inheritance Tax (IHT) liability with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

Testimonial

“We were very grateful for all your help with the probate valuation and subsequent consideration in keeping us informed and advising us about the best course of action to take. From the very start, when you came to look over everything at the house in Ferring, we felt we were in safe hands. Obviously we were delighted and, quite frankly, astonished at some of the prices achieved at the different auctions. Thank you for all your help, expertise, and advice along the way.”

Maggie Gibson, London.

    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.
