Property Services

We offer a number of services to help with the management and sale of the deceased’s former home whilst it is subject to probate. We will obtain competitive quotes for you from our carefully selected service providers and arrange for the services to take place on your behalf.

House Clearance

We can arrange a quote for a reliable company to clear the home and sell or dispose of all furniture and other effects. All of our suppliers are fully insured, and we can cover the whole of the UK. If you are happy with the quote, you have been provided the solicitor will arrange the service on your behalf.

Document Retrieval Service

We can arrange a quote for a specialist document retrieval company to visit the home to search for and retrieve important documents, valuables and other personal effects before the property is cleared. This can be useful if you do not live near to the property and worry you may have missed important documents that may be required for probate. If you are happy with the quote, you have been provided the solicitor will arrange the service on your behalf.

Maintenance

We can arrange a quote for the heating system to be drained down and the property to be made safe to leave empty. We can also arrange for regular inspection visits of unoccupied properties. If you are selling the property as part of the probate this may be a condition of your insurance. If you would like more information about this call us on the freephone number. If you are happy with the quote, you have been provided the solicitor will arrange the service on your behalf.

Gardening

We can arrange a quote for a gardener to maintain the garden until the property is sold. Keeping the gardens maintained will help you maximize the value of the property.
