Ewbank's Hampshire Office
We also provide written professional valuations for the purpose of insurance, probate, family-division and capital gains tax from entire collections to single items. Insurance companies require owners to maintain a detailed inventory and up-to-date values to maintain cover and there is also a much better chance of recovering stolen items if they are professionally described and photographed. Valuations are required for accurate calculation of inheritance tax liability. Ewbank’s valuation staff have many years’ experience of dealing with probate lawyers and executors and can also recommend house clearance experts. Probate valuations can also be the basis for the equitable division of an estate amongst beneficiaries and/or the eventual sale at auction of any surplus antiques.
