Hogben auctions offer a quick and thorough valuation service for the purpose of inheritance tax, with a sensitive approach. Liaising with the executors directly or the solicitors we provide professional, comprehensive valuations to enable the probate process 

The company works with a number of local solicitors and is doing an increasing amount of work with private individuals who are executors and having to sort out deceased estates themselves. This situation can frequently incur concerns from other family members or interested parties, but can be resolved by the help and advice of a professional valuer.. whether is a complete house clearance or Often we are merely asked to look at a couple of items such as jewellery or a painting, 

                                        Please contact us to arrange an appointment  0777 999 5117

We can also provide other valuations for situations such as family division and sales by private treat or Insurance valuations 

                                                                    House Clearance

Clearing a property can be an exhausting and stressful experience. We can provide valuations for auction followed by a full house clearance. It can be surprising what items are saleable and having a valuer visit the premises to list the items of value allows family members and interested parties to make decisions about what items to sell or keep. Once items have been taken or consigned for auction we are able to offer a full clearance service leaving the property empty, swept and hovered and ready for estate agents or the next occupants.
Please contact us for further information, advice or to make an appointment for a no obligation valuation.
