Whittons can prepare detailed valuations for probate and inheritance tax purposes. We liaise directly with solicitors and executors to prepare these reports, which are often needed to be prepared quickly. We will always prioritise such valuations, to avoid unnecessary distress, yet acknowledge that there may also be delays before a deceased person’s estate can be finalised. We can also assist with the immediate storage of personal valuable belongings at short notice during this difficult time, therefore, and arrange for them to be sold at auction when the time comes. An unoccupied property can become vulnerable if belongings are left unattended, and the insurance may become invalid, so this service is invaluable following the loss of a loved one, when so many sensitive issues need to be taken care of. Similarly, we can arrange to empty, clear, and clean that property in preparation for sale, and can liaise directly with the estate agents for this purpose too.
