Estate Settlement / Probate Appraisals

Property appraisal is an important part of estate settlement. These appraisals are also known as "estate appraisals" or "probate appraisals" and when completed by a designated appraiser, they are typically the only type of valuation document accepted by government entities and the court system. Whether it is part of the estate administration tax calculation, or just to ensure a fair market value when one family member is planning to buy a share of the property from the other beneficiaries, a formal appraisal report is essential. ​

In many cases, you will need a value based on the date of passing (retrospective appraisal). In some cases, you will require a current market value or perhaps both of these values. Your legal representative or accountant will be able to provide you guidance as to the valuation date required.


​Premier Appraisal Services is a professional residential appraisal firm that is trusted by Lawyers and Estate Executors to provide an unbiased, accurate valuation of your loved one's home.
