One of the most important parts of the probate process, is confirming the value of any property held within the estate. However, an estate agent valuation is not acceptable for IHT purposes, and a RICS is an expensive alternative.
At PLG we have the answer – our HMRC Compliant Valuation Report.
This report covers Section 160 Inheritance Tax Act 1984, and Taxation of Chargeable Gains Act 1992. It can also be used for the purpose of valuing properties in Trust, and where a Deputyship Order is in place.
Not only is it more cost effective, but it is also delivered in an easy-to-read format with a member of our friendly team calling to go through the report with you.
We also have the PLG Valuation Appraisal which is perfect for when access cannot be arranged for any reason, or for when IHT is not applicable, but you still require an accurate idea of what the property is worth.
By working with us, you have complete peace of mind that there is someone in your corner, ensuring you are kept compliant throughout the property sale process.
Our role is to take all the pressure away from you, and to handle the marketing process on your behalf. We effectively take over as the ‘seller’ of the property, meaning we are in a position to drive the estate agents, gain all viewing feedback, and ensure that every strategy available is being used to generate higher viewing levels.
Why do we work this way? Simple – as we only pay the selling agent, they all work that bit harder. This means you receive higher viewing levels, which will result in more offers being put forward from a larger number of potential buyers, which means you get the best price!
We will carry out a full financial qualification on your potential buyers, and check their position to ensure they are in a position to proceed.
From here we report to you, so you can make the decision on which buyer you wish to go with!
Obviously, we will always give you our opinion, but you are our client, and we will always act on your instructions.
✓ Timescale – PLG work to ensure that your buyer is aware of the timescale relating to the sale of the property, which is usually dictated by the Grant of Probate being issued. With our Sales Progression team ensuring that the process is as stress free as possible.
✓ Communication – Is at the heart of everything we do. With this in mind you will be issued with full weekly reports that outline the progress of the marketing process, or sale progress once a buyer has been secured.
✓ No Tie In Period – We are so convinced that you will be impressed with how we work, we offer a no tie in period agreement. This means that if at any point you are not happy with how we are representing you, you are able to walk away at any time.
✓ No Sale, No Fee – Should PLG fail to introduce a buyer that exchanges contracts to purchase your property, you do not pay us a sale fee.
Worried about the fee? Don’t be. PLG will pay the selling agent from the fee you pay us! This means you do not have multiple fees to worry about, instead you have one, low fee which is settled by your conveyancer upon completion.
Should you require a different sales approach, we also have the PLG Auction.
This sales method places the property in front of an extensive audience who have been qualified and are ready to exchange upon ‘hammer down’.
The best part? The buyer pays your selling fee. This means you retain the maximum amount from the proceeds of the sale.
There is nothing worse than wondering what is happening once you have a buyer in place, and not hearing from your agent regarding how the sale is progressing.
We decided that every seller deserves to have a service that provides peace of mind throughout what is already a stressful time.
With this in mind we offer our Sales Progression as a standalone service.
So, if you have a private buyer in place, but want the support and updates our team provide, you are able to access exactly that.
