Why do I need a probate valuation?

Getting a probate valuation is important for several reasons. Firstly and most importantly, it enables the accurate calculation of Inheritance Tax liability; but it can also be the basis of the fair and even distribution of estate items among beneficiaries and/or the eventual sale of any surplus items at auction.

Probate services

No two estates are the same. Whether large or small, easy or difficult, we’re here to help. We can provide all different levels of probate valuations, from global valuations to full inventory of contents. We can cater to the needs of the Executors and Beneficiaries to make sure all needs are met.

HMRC guidelines request that anything with an individual value of £500 or more should be listed separately, and a global figure is placed on the remaining items. Sometimes a figure below £500 is required to ensure the fair distribution of items to beneficiaries. In this situation, we are pleased to advise on where this figure should lie, within the scope of any individual estate.
