Book a probate valuation




Probate valuation

One of our trusted team of probate specialists will visit your client's property and produce an HMRC compliant valuation report of the property contents, itemising all chattels with a value of £500 or more. Our valuers can also help identify bequests and will indicate anything that might be suitable for sale at auction with Dawsons.

Sale at auction

All saleable items are collected and transported to our saleroom in Berkshire, ready to be catalogued, marketed, and sold at auction. Dawsons bespoke in-house marketing approach will ensure items are presented to known buyers in over 120 countries across the world, which guarantees the maximum return for the estate.

House clearance

Once all of the saleable items have been taken to auction, our clearance team will get to work clearing and removing the remaining contents (items with no commercial value) from the property, recycling or donating to charity where possible, and leaving it empty and ready for sale.
