Obtaining A Probate Valuation Of Property
This valuation should be as accurate as possible and estimates should be avoided. Estate agents valuations vary dramatically and if used for submission to Inland Revenue for inheritance tax purposes can sometimes be questioned by revenue inspectors especially if the property is not being sold straight away. A challenge by inland revenue of a property valuation can result in the inland revenue instructing the district valuer, which could quite likely mean a higher valuation, more tax to pay and a penalty. In some cases the estate agent concerned may use a RICS qualified surveyor to calculate the house value and this is far more acceptable and quite unlikely to be questioned.
