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 the property, take details of the contents and provide a written valuation in accordance with Inland Revenue regulations, by a professionally qualified valuer.
We will also value just specific items if required.
Valuations are carried out under the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors guidelines.
Charges for Valuations are on a time basis.
£180 for the first hour to include travel time within a 10 mile radius of our office. £90 per hour for subsequent time time spent in situ or in research. Minimum charge for a Valuation in situ is £180.
ALL CHARGES ARE SUBJECT TO VAT AT THE CURRENT RATE.
