We act for Executors in valuing property that forms part of a deceased personís estate.
Inheritance Tax Valuation
Inheritance Tax is a tax payable on death. It is calculated on the value of the assets of the deceased. It is currently 40% above £325,000 subject to certain exemptions and relief. We can provide a valuation for Inheritance Tax purposes for each property owned by the deceased, to include a Market Value as defined under Section 160 of the Inheritance Tax Act 1984.
In carrying out the valuation, we consider the effect a Tenancy in Common will have on the value and also consider the loss to the value of the estate as a result of any Lifetime Transfer.
Charities Act Valuation
