A valuer and auctioneer with over 30 years’ experience in the auction business. As a senior valuer at Sworders, I have extensive experience in undertaking probate valuations, working with both solicitors and private clients in what is often a sensitive time for the family.

Sworders were very happy, when asked, to support this event. We want to give clients an understanding of the processes associated with probate valuations and clarify some of the myths that surround what happens during and after a valuation of assets.

It is important clients feel confident and reassured that the advice we give is for the benefit of the estate and should the family wish items go into auction, we will always identify the right sale to ensure that they reach the best possible market.
