Our Valuations Department is experienced in the changing requirements of the Capital Taxes Office. We provide probate valuations on the basis of mid-estimate of an item’s fair auction value presuming a willing buyer and willing seller. Our valuations are presented in a form consistent with IHT407 and accompanied by digital images as required.
In addition to valuations, the department is able to arrange other important and time critical services such as the removal of valuable items from vulnerable locations together with safe and secure storage. Under certain circumstances we may also be able to make advance payments in order to defray IHT, restoration, family division or other estate-related costs.
Whilst we will charge a fee for providing written and illustrated probate valuations these will be refunded in the event that items are subsequently sold by us at auction or by private treaty.
