It is estimated that six million UK households are underinsured. If the worst happens this can be devastating for those involved and can result in significant financial loss.
Furthermore most homeowners do not itemise their own possessions so have little or no documentary evidence to present to their insurance company.
If you have a collection of artwork, antiques, jewellery or other valuable collectible items I would recommend a three yearly review of your valuations for insurance purposes.

Probate & Estate Valuations
After the sad loss of a loved one a sensitive, independent and professional valuation service can be essential. I work with solicitors, executors and estate trustees and offer a complete probate (inheritance tax) valuation service. This is required for the administration of larger estates.
My report includes a Valuation Certificate’ which is required under section 160 of the Inheritance Act 1984.
