When someone dies, their land and buildings may be subject to inheritance tax, and the valuation of their estate has to be carried out by a chartered surveyor.
We will ensure that you get an accurate valuation through our RICS chartered surveyors, and remember that fees for valuation can be offset against the value of the estate. The valuation will find out what their properties were worth at the time of their death, and should include:
- Private homes
- Properties owned for holidays or investment
- Agricultural land and farms
- Business properties
- Land and buildings such as woodland, amenity land and lock-up garages
- Any rights that are attached to land, like fishing or shooting rights
