We provide a written valuation with photographs. Whether this is for a single item, multiple items of full house contents will be dependant upon your insurer’s requirements. Under insurance can be a major problem if you ever have to make a claim. Make sure your most valued possessions are professionally assessed and that your overall cover is kept up to date.
INHERITANCE TAX / PROBATE:
If you are dealing with the contents of a property following a death, your solicitor will advise whether a valuation of the house contents is required. Inheritance Tax will depend upon the size and nature of the estate. Maxwell’s will arrange to visit and provide a written valuation in accordance with Inland Revenue regulations, by a professionally qualified valuer.
