Valuations for Probate & Inheritance Tax

Valuations for Probate & Inheritance Tax

Executors and solicitors acting on behalf of a deceased estate are invariably required to commission an independent ‘probate valuation’ of art, antiques and other personal effects in order to assess Inheritance Tax (IHT) liability with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).


The Pedestal can carry out probate valuations of chattels, in accordance with Section 160 of the Inheritance Tax Act 1984, and deals directly with executors to help arrange a probate valuation of the deceased’s estate.


Our estate valuations for Inheritance Tax assessment list art, antiques, jewellery and general house contents with all work being compiled by a RICS qualified art and antiques valuer. We have access to a specialist team of valuers handling probate valuations of chattels for the assessment of inheritance tax liability.


All IHT valuations (Estate Valuation Reports) are HMRC compliant and our probate valuations are prepared by a specialist probate valuer. We would be happy to discuss all stages of the probate valuation process with you.

Thank you for submitting your valuation request, someone will be in touch shortly.
