Dudley Singleton, FNAEA, regularly undertakes property Probate Valuations within the area instructed by trustees, beneficiaries and local solicitors and has undertaken Probate Valuations since forming the business over 40 years ago. Probate Valuations are based on comparable prices of property recently sold within the immediate area to the property which is the subject of probate. It is his job, when instructed as probate valuer, that whatever valuation is placed on the property every effort will be made to ensure that the valuation will be acceptable to HM Revenue & Customs.
Dudley Singleton is a Fellow of The National Association of Valuers & Auctioneers.
Dudley Singleton has been auctioning property on a regular basis for over 40 years and is able to properly present a property for public auction. Not every property is suitable for public auction; there are many factors that should be taken into consideration before that decision is made. The major benefits of an auction are:
- By competition a higher price may be achieved for a property than by normal treaty sale.
- A date for the auction and completion date can be set at the outset of marketing, so plans can be made early.
- At the fall of the hammer, the successful purchaser will be asked to sign the Contract of Sale and pay a deposit. Twenty eight days later that purchaser will be obliged to pay the remainder of the completion monies to the vendor’s solicitor and completion will take place.
