Our knowledgeable and friendly team provides written valuations for probate, including specific items, specialist collections, or valuations of whole house contents. All of our written probate valuations are compliant with the 1984 Inheritance Act.
Our insurance valuation reports for either specific items or specialist collections record their value for use in the event of theft, loss, or damage. Keeping these valuations up-to-date delivers peace of mind.
In circumstances where assets are to be divided, such as family or matrimonial division, you can rely on our confidential, discreet and impartial advice. Valuations offer a clear inventory to ensure a fair division.
Local & professional knowledge
Working from our purpose-built showrooms on the Cumbria / Lancashire border, we are well placed to provide valuations throughout Cumbria and the Lake District, Lancashire, North Yorkshire, and up to the Borders.
Now in our third century of auctioneering, collections or items requiring sale are in safe hands here at the auction house.
