Liverpool Probate Valuations

Valuations for Inheritance Tax purposes (often called probate valuations) are an important part of administering an estate.  

We provide valuations of works of art, antiques and collectables for inheritance tax purposes in accordance with the Section 160 of the Inheritance Tax Act 1984.

A professional probate valuation does not only help to ensure your peace of mind, but it also serves many other purposes:

  • It enables HMRC to calculate the correct amount of inheritance tax payable
  • It can identify and value items listed in the will, which is useful for executors
  • It can establish the approximate value of assets, which is helpful for equitable division

“Mark Littler provides a role that has become scarce in a polarised market: the ‘one stop shop’ for an estate’s executor or solicitor.”

The History of Liverpool

The first recorded reference to Liverpool was in 1190, when it was referred to as ‘Liuerpul’, and it’s believed that the name derives from the Old English words ‘liver’ and ‘pol’, meaning ‘thick’ and ‘pool’. Settlement in the area can be traced much earlier in history, with a small population during the Iron Age that are believed to have farmed the area.

As the Roman’s moved north to battle the Druids in 70 AD, Liverpool was also placed under the influence of Roman troops. A fort was constructed in Chester, which also saw the rise of a civilian settlement. Upon the departure of the Romans, the land was primarily farmed. In the following years, Liverpool saw battles between the Anglo-Saxons and Northumbria, as well as Viking settlers.

By 1207, the borough of ‘Livpul’ was established by King Jon, and the Liverpool castle was constructed in 1235; the castle stood until 1726. This sparked the beginnings of the city of Liverpool, and soon after the castle construction a church was built, and later, a market was established. At this point, Liverpool was still very small, the area had only seven streets and farming and fishing were the main industries.

In the early 15th century, economy saw a decline and the gentry grew in prominence. The Molyneux family and Stanley family began a feud in the 15th century, and by the mid-16th century, the population of Liverpool had dropped from around 1000 in the 14th century, to 600.

It wasn’t until the end of the 16th century that the poor state of Liverpool began to improve, and by the early 17th century, a better charter was given to Liverpool. After being sieged in 1644, things started to look up for Liverpool.

Liverpool enjoyed the construction of a wet dock in 1715 and the construction of the Albert Dock in 1846, leading to the acknowledgement of Liverpool as a key trade area; the area also benefited greatly during the industrial revolution. Liverpool became a city in 1880, but the devastating results of World War II saw the economy in the city plummet. The significance of the ports in Liverpool has been recently acknowledged.
