Probate & Estate Services

Arranging the estate of a late loved one can be difficult and distressing, and we recognise the importance of carrying out valuations at a sensitive time, where speed is of the essence.

We provide a complete and seamless service to take care of every stage of the process, recognising the needs of executors, beneficiaries, legal advisors, solicitors, estate agents and other professional services.


Upon invitation, one of our team of trusted probate specialists will swiftly attend the property, and produce a detailed inventory and valuation with care and discretion, completing the service with a written and digital report suitable for probate and inheritance tax calculation purposes. All of our valuations are HMRC compliant and in accordance with The Inheritance Tax Act 1984.

Sale at Auction

Upon Instruction, we will collect and transport all saleable items to our saleroom, ready for cataloguing, marketing and sale at auction. Dawsons are an internationally renowned fine art auction house, specialising in the sale of jewellery, watches, silver, Asian art, paintings, antique furniture, classic cars, motorcycles, collectables (and much more). We are able to market to a huge global audience, streaming all of our auctions online and achieving the maximum amount of worth for any items that we auction.
