Our Services

Probate Valuations is a firm of independent fine art, antique and jewellery valuers based in Henley-on-Thames. We work closely with Lawyers, Executors, Trustees and the General Public to provide written valuation reports for either probate or potential sale through auction.

If the Estate is close to or over the Inheritance Tax threshold it is important to have the general and household goods (chattels) valued, even if you think there is nothing of value in order to avoid any potential scrutiny by Inland Revenue.

If you do not take these steps it opens up the likelihood of the Revenue questioning how an Executor had calculated the values. He could receive penalties for negligence in this matter and a possible investigation of the whole Estate, causing lengthy delays.
