House Valuation For Probate

Recommended Posts

A friend has got a couple of EA in to give valuations on a house - it's to be divided up for probate.

The figures they've given are above peak prices!

Insane.

I've suggested he tries a surveyor for a price as they won't be touting for business as much.

You could ask if they would price it for a quick sale,

It's a spring bounce, don't you know.

They've both mentioned selling it at auction...

I assume that's their quick sale method but values for that have been high too.

EDIT:

He wants a lower value so he can have the whole house (There is another property worth much more that needs selling too)

Pick another EA. Assuming the house is above IHT threshold, one would really want to get the lowest valuation possible, and then after the estate is cleared, sell it two years later.

Of course, volunteering to pay more IHT is not necessarily a bad thing..
