I was advised by my solicitor that, to avoid an IHT investigation, I should contact a qualified RICS valuer, to carry out a probate valuation of all the contents of my late father's property, but had no idea where to start. I called Jeffrey Avery and Associates and they arranged for a valuer to visit the property, and within a week I received a full written probate valuation report which was subsequently accepted by HMRC without problems.

I would not hesitate to recommend this service to anyone in the same situation.

Some interesting facts about Peckham SE15

At the beginning of the 19th century Peckham was a "small, quiet, retired village surrounded by fields". Since 1744 stagecoaches had travelled with an armed guard between Peckham and London to give protection from highwaymen. The rough roads constrained traffic so a branch of the Grand Surrey Canal was proposed as a route from the Thames to Portsmouth. The canal was built from Surrey Commercial Docks to Peckham before the builders ran out of money in 1826. The abbreviated canal was used to ship soft wood for construction and although the canal was drained and backfilled in 1970 Whitten's timber merchants still stands on the site of the canal head.

In 1851 Thomas Tilling started an innovative omnibus service from Peckham to London. Tilling's buses were the first to make use of pre-arranged bus stops, which helped them to run to a reliable timetable. His services expanded to cover much of London until his horses were requisitioned for the Army in World War I.

Before Peckham Rye railway station was opened in 1865 the area had developed around centres: north and south. In the north, housing spread out to the south of the Elderly Kent Road including Peckham New Town built on land owned by the Hill relatives (from whom the name Peckham Hill Street derives). In the south, giant houses were built to the west of the common land called Peckham Rye and the lane that led to it.

With the arrival of the railway and the introduction of horse-drawn trams about 10 years later, Peckham became available to artisans and clerical staff working in the City and the docks. Housing for this socioeconomic group filled all the remaining fields except the Rye. In 1868 the sacristy of Camberwell St Giles bought the Rye to keep it as common land. Responding to concerns about the unsafe overcrowding of the common on holidays the sacristy bought the adjoining Homestall Farm (the last farm in the area) in 1894 and opened this as Peckham Rye Park.

With the inflow of more youthful residents with funds to spend Rye Lane became a major shopping street. Jones and Higgins opened a small shop in 1867 (on the corner of Rye Lane and Peckham High Street) that would become the best known department store in South London for plenty of years. It closed in the 1980s. In 1870 George Gibson Bussey moved to Peckham and set up a firm described as "Firearms, Ammunition and Shooting" at the Museum Works, Rye Lane, Peckham. The Museum of Firearms was built in 1867. The Ordnance Survey Map of 1868 shows the Museum building with a rifle range at the rear extending along the side of the railway embankment for 150 yards.

The southern finish of Peckham was the location for the railway line that one time served The Crystal Palace in Sydenham. Though the line was finally dismantled due to the collapse of the embankment in to the gardens of Marmora Road it is still feasible to see giant sections of it. The flats on Wood Vale and the full length of Brenchley Gardens trace its route.

The late 19th century also saw the arrival of George Batty, a manufacturer of condiments, whose main business stood at Finsbury Pavement. The company's Peckham premises occupied 19 railway arches. It was acquired by the H. J. Heinz Company in 1905 as their first UK manufacturing base.

Marmora, Therapia, Mundania and Scutari Roads all derive their curious names from locations in the work of the Crimean War. Close by to them is the Aquarius Golf Work which is located over an underground reservoir. When the reservoir was built it was the largest covered reservoir in the world.

Camberwell Elderly Cemetery, on Forest Hill Road, is a later example of the ring of Victorian cemeteries that were built to alleviate the overcrowding of churchyards that was experienced with the speedy expansion of London in the 19th century. The Stone House at its main entrance was used in the filming of Joe Orton's Entertaining Mr. Sloane (released 1970). It was gutted by fire in the mid-1970s and rebuilt some years later. Camberwell Elderly Cemetery did not have the grandeur of nearby Nunhead Cemetery, which was of the original London necropoles, and one time full it was replaced by Camberwell New Cemetery on Brenchley Gardens.

Brenchley Gardens Park follows the route of the elderly line to The Crystal Palace culminating at the High Level station. The park runs behind Marmora Road and the remains of the embankment then continues along Wood Vale where flats were built on it. The line was closed in 1954 following a decline in its use after the destruction of the Crystal Palace in 1936 and due to slippage in the structure of the embankment.
