SOLICITORS

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.

 

What makes Mark Littler different?

Once the valuation is complete we can then advise you and your client on the best way to sell the items in order to realise the highest amount possible.  As we are independent we are not restricted to selling at auction, nor are we restricted to using just one auction house.

Helping you and your client

We recommend and personally consign your client’s items to the auction house/s that we believe is going to get the most money for them.

We can also organise items to be sold privately.  As auction houses take up to 50% of the overall sale price, selling items privately can lead to significantly higher returns. 

01270 440357

The only number you will need to call throughout.  We take care of all of the logistics and administration, taking the entire process off your hands.

Why does this matter?

If you approach an auction house directly with an estate they are unlikely to tell you that they don’t have the expertise to handle it.  They will, therefore, do what is in their best interest rather than your clients.

Can we clean the bathroom sink?

Yes.  But not personally.  We work closely with a house clearance company who can dispose of all of the remaining items and leave your client with a clean and empty house ready to market.

What do we charge?

Our valuation fee is £150 for the first hour and then £75 per hour thereafter.  

If items are consigned to auction through us there is no additional charge.  We will simply receive a commission from the auction house.

If we sell items privately we charge 10% of the sale price.

ESTATE AGENTS

You take care of the house.  We’ll take care of everything inside of it. 

 

Downsizers

Do you have a client who is downsizing and has no idea what to do with the items that won’t fit in their new house?  We can provide a valuation of their unwanted items and then sell them in the most profitable way.

We sell through both auctions and private sales, helping your client clear their property and profit from anything they no longer need.

House Clearance

Not all houses are left in a desirable condition.  If you need a property cleared and cleaned we can arrange this on your behalf.
