When you inherit an estate, you become responsible for its contents. Without an accurate valuation, you’re at risk of overpaying or underpaying inheritance tax.

You may also be liable for capital gains tax on any increase in value since the original owner’s death. This is why it’s so important to have a professional probate valuation carried out.

At Clear It Out, we understand the importance of getting things right. We’ll work with you to ensure that the valuation is as accurate as possible, so you can be sure that you’re not paying more tax than you need to.
