Insurance and Probate Valuations
In this ever changing world with house contents becoming
more vulnerable to theft Insurance companies are, in the event of a claim, asking
claimants to produce an inventory and valuation of the contents of their property.
If no valuation is available, very often the insurance company will not settle a
claim. In these circumstances, auctioneers and Valuers are not able to give retrospective
valuations. It is the recommendation of most quality insurance policies that the
house contents are covered with an inventory and valuation therefore giving a much
better opportunity of making a claim in the event of a loss.
Insurance and Probate Valuations are tailor made to suit each individual clients
requirements. Insurance valuations are normally fully illustrated. Generally three
copies of the valuation are produced, one for your own reference, another to be
lodged with your bank and a third copy to be presented to your insurance company.
