Probate Valuations with
Homes Partnership

Following the loss of a family member or friend there are various processes that require completing in order to finalise the estate, one of which will be establishing the value of any land or property that forms part of it and as the Executor or Administrator, it will be part of your role to organise this.

At homes Partnership, we are able to provide probate valuations all across West Sussex, including Crawley, Horley, East Grinstead and the surround areas.

The common approach is to gain 3 marketing valuations to determine a fair and accurate value, which will be followed up with written confirmation. At the same time we are, if relevant of course, able to provide marketing advice including the thoughts on how saleable the property or land may be and the likely demand that could be expected.

If you are wanting to find out more about the detailed valuations carried out by one of the experienced team, feel free to contact us via telephone on 01293 529999.

For any enquiries or if you are unsure whether the estate is likely to be taxable, then please feel free to contact our office and we will be pleased to help and provide further insight to the best of our knowledge. If there is a question we cannot answer, we will endeavour to find out the correct information and feed this back to you.

Frequently asked questions

The property can be marketed and a buyer sourced, a price agreed but ultimately the contacts cannot be exchanged and therefore, technically sold, prior to the probate having been granted. This is the most common route to sale chosen.

This will vary according to the complexity of the estate. A very brief guide will be 6 weeks for a simple estate whereas it could be more like 12-14 weeks where the estate exceeds the inheritance tax threshold.

This is completely understandable and generally we look to undertake all viewings for all our properties regardless. We never allow buyers to have a key and show themselves around and have many security procedures in place to ensure the keys are held securely.

We do advise you remove any valuable items should the property remain unoccupied, although we do not advise you clear the contents entirely. A property will generally feel more homely with furnishings in. De-cluttering any property is always advisable if possible, however we can advise in more detail after we have visited each home.

We will discuss and agree on what is best for you with each individual sale. We are more than happy to keep multiple people informed, although the executor(s) will be the primary point of contact.

Service is
our priority.

The perfect plan.

The key to our success in achieving the best possible result for our customers lies in our tried and tested marketing strategy of bringing your property to the market. 

1. Prepare your marketing

Once you are ready, we will attend the property in order to produce the photography, the floorplan and our amazing 3D virtual tour.

2. Contact our database

With hundreds of buyers at our disposal, we will begin working through our database to generate interest in the property prior to marketing. We sell many properties 'off-market'.

3. Social Media Marketing

Property marketing continues to change and we are determined to change with it! All of our properties are previewed on our social media platforms ahead of launch for those super-keen buyers!

4. Go live on the portals

Once your property particulars have been approved by you, we will then begin marketing on the portals. We advertise your property on many websites including; Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location.

5. Add more marketing power

If the initial marketing period has not got you sold, we will review your marketing which may include taking new photographs and making your property a 'Premium Listing' on the portals to give your property extra marketing power.

6. Continuous reviewing

We will have weekly calls with you to discuss your ongoing marketing. We will work together to ensure your marketing never goes stale and improvements are continually made where possible. We will not simply leave you online and hope for the best.
