Probate Reports

Our Valuers regularly carry out probate valuations of chattels (possessions within an estate), in accordance with the Inheritance Tax Act 1984 and we are able to deal directly with executors to help arrange a probate at a suitable day and time. Our Probate valuations offer peace of mind for as little as £25 and as part of our service we will provide you with a full list of contents including art, antiques, jewellery and general house contents.

Once an initial visit has been arranged and carried out, we will provide you with a full draft valuation report on all contents within the estate. This will then be shared with you and will provide you a clear indication of the value of all the contents. We can prepare the written report just as descriptive text or can present the text alongside images of each of the objects within the estate (at the executor’s agreement).

Once you are happy with the draft report, a final formal printed copy will be prepared and sent to you. Our experienced team at East Anglia Probates will be on hand at every stage of this process to offer advice and guidance to you and to ensure the probate process runs smoothly.

All valuations are carried out in complete confidence.

Once a probate report has been received the executor of the estate might wish to sell items from the Estate. East Anglia Probates is the sister company of Bishop & Miller Auctioneers and can offer a swift transition of your goods. We will work with you to ensure you get the best price for your items and our valuers will ensure items are entered into the most suitable auctions for the items. Bishop & Miller Auctioneers hold a number of specialist auctions throughout their calendar and can offer sales for the range of items the estate may contain.

Please note, some high value items may be subject to Capital Gains Tax; our probate valuation team can provide advice on this should this affect you.
