We provide written house contents valuation for probate.


Clearance Solutions provides a range of professional probate valuation services to solicitors, executors, administrators and private individuals. This takes into consideration the calculation of inheritance tax and capital gains tax, working out the probate value of house contents, goods and chattels against the market value of the house.

What is probate value?

Following a bereavement, probate is the legal right to oversee the affairs of the deceased prior to the estate being distributed according to the will. Probate valuation of house contents (known as goods and chattels) involves determining the monetary resale value of these items, which are deemed as part of the assets of the estate. This value is then offset against the cost of inheritance tax, if your property falls above the £325,000 threshold (correct as of 2017).

What probate valuation services are available?

Our standard probate valuation service starts from £250 + VAT. This will involve an experienced, qualified, independent valuer visiting your property to appraise the contents. A report will then be returned to you within 24 hours of the visit, including up to two hours of desk research.

Due to high property values, many estates now fall over the inheritance tax threshold – even if the value of the contents is relatively modest. Consequently, we would recommend our standard valuation service to most customers.

Clearance Solutions are rated 4.9/5 on Google+ based on 28 reviews, and 8.9 on TrustPilot based on 21 reviews.
