Fixed Fees For RICS Probate Valuations
If a property or estate is likely to be subject to inheritance tax, it is advisable to get an RICS probate valuation. This will help you to calculate the amount of tax due to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
An RICS probate valuation is carried out by a qualified chartered surveyor. They will assess the value of the property based on its market value on the date of death. This is the most accurate way to determine the value of a property for inheritance tax purposes.
If you are an executor of an estate, it is your responsibility to ensure that the correct amount of inheritance tax is paid. Getting an RICS probate valuation will help you to do this.
