What is a Probate Valuation and When Is It Needed?
The death of a loved one is always a big loss for a family. If someone dies, relatives have the legal right to inherit his/her property, money, shares, etc. When dealing with inheritance you will have to get the probate valuation in Southall. This type of valuation is required for the probate process.
You have to pay HMRC inheritance tax when you inherit something. According to the Inheritance Tax Act 1984, you have to pay the tax if the value of assets is more than £325,000. Let’s assume that you’ve decided to sell inherited property and its value has increased since the moment the deceased person purchased it. In this case, you also have to pay the so called capital gains tax. Probate valuation of property needs to be done for inheritance tax purposes. In order to determine if an heir has to pay inheritance tax or not, it’s necessary to do the accurate valuation and determine the market value of a house and other assets.
Importance of Accurate Probate Valuations
As you can see, the prices of properties are constantly increasing. So, if you inherit someone’s property or financial assets they have to be valued correctly. If assets are valued too high, you will have to pay a high inheritance tax bill. Therefore, obtaining a house valuation for probate will allow you to avoid paying more in taxes than you have to. On the other hand, you are likely to come under suspicion of fraud if assets are valued too low.
