How does probate house clearance work?

After losing a loved one, in some cases, you’ll need to obtain a grant of probate before making any financial plans or putting the property for sale.

Prior to clearing the property, you’ll have to check if any items have been specifically gifted in the will. If so, keep those items safe, and make sure they’re not removed by the clearance company.

You may have to pay Inheritance Tax on the value of the household contents. If this is the case, you’ll have to get a valuation of the contents before the clearance.

Once this has been carried out, the house clearance company can begin. They’ll dispose of, recycle, or donate the rest of the items in the property, doing a lot of the hard work for you.

          What can be done before probate is granted

          Can I clear the property before probate?

          In some cases, you cannot clear a property before a grant of probate is secured.

          You can plan what you wish to do with the items in the property before probate, then take action once probate is granted. You can also start to declutter the property to separate any valuables.

          Researching probate house clearance companies and letting them know they’ll be needed soon is advised.
