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 Windsor

The early history of the site is unknown, although the site was almost certainly established many years ago before the medieval castle was built. Stories from the city notes that the combination of navigable rivers and the point of the hill strategically located in the likelihood of permanent human settlement from the beginning. The evidence includes archaeological discoveries of Windsor, such as hand axes of the Palaeolithic, Neolithic Flint picks, swords and a clasp of the Iron Age, Bronze Age. While the Roman remains are few, there is ample evidence of the Anglo-Saxon settlement in the region.

Windsor is first mentioned in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. The name comes from the Old English Windle ore, or about "the river," a real solution, now called Old Windsor, located about five kilometers from the modern city. Windsor Castle was built by William the Conqueror in the decade after the Norman Conquest of 1066, a mound of the castle and the wooden structure in the manor of Clewer. It was noted in the Domesday Book as "Windsor Castle". Sometime after 1086, probably during the reign of King Henry I, the royal family moved three miles from the castle, new construction. In 1110, the use of high crown (Grand Council of State) are recorded as taking place at the castle and King Henry married his second wife in 1121, after the debacle of "White Ship."

The town of New Windsor, a former estate of the Crown, was a privileged settlement from the start, apparently the rights of a "free borough", as in other cities had to pay heavy taxes to the king. He had a guild of merchants (known from the fourteenth century the brotherhood, or fraternity of the Trinity) at the beginning of 13 century, and under royal patronage, the main town of the county later in the century. Windsor was awarded the Royal Borough status by Edward I in the charter of the 1277th result was no new rights or privileges to Windsor but, as one historian puts it, "acknowledged [Windsor] existence and gave him a legal status as a borough". More importantly, as an autonomous city, insisted that "cheest common" to pay for improvements in the city of its own resources. The accounts of the sixteenth century city, survive, although most the archive once great district was destroyed, probably in late seventeenth century.

New Windsor is a city of national importance in the Middle Ages, certainly one of the fifty richest cities in 1332. Its prosperity came from its close association with the royal house. Repeated investment in the castle brought London merchants (goldsmiths, grocers and dry goods Spicers) to the city and provide many jobs for city residents. The development of the castle under Edward III (1350-1368), for example, was the largest ever construction project in England in the Middle Ages, and many people worked at Windsor Castle, in this construction project. Henry III, a hundred years before, had spent more money on Windsor Castle than any other real construction project, with the exception of the rebuilding of Westminster Abbey. The Black Death in 1348, while reducing the populations of some cities of over 50%, seems to have had little impact on Windsor.

The development of the castle continued in the 15th century. Windsor was a major pilgrimage site, especially for Londoners. Pilgrims came to touch the royal shrine of the murdered Henry VI and the fragment of the True Cross in the new chapel of St. George (1480) and visit the same Kings College at Eton (Eton College), opened in 1440 at the Blessed Virgin Mary. Pilgrims came with substantial sums to use. There were over 29 hotels in Windsor to provide accommodation, some very large. The city was very prosperous. For pilgrims of London Windsor were probably only second in importance to Canterbury and the shrine of Thomas Becket. Henry VIII was buried in St George's Chapel in 1547, next to the body of Jane Seymour, mother of his legitimate son that

Edward (Edward VI). Henry, the founder of the Church of England, might want to use the power of the Catholic pilgrims to the city. His willingness to give the impression.

The settlement at Old Windsor largely transferred to this "new" Windsor during the 12th century, although planning and new town (including the parish church, market, bridge and leper hospital) did not occur until c . 1170, after the civil war of the reign of Stephen. At the same time, the same upper room of the castle was rebuilt in stone. Windsor Bridge is the first bridge over the Thames between Staines and Reading, which was built during the bridge construction is not common. He played an important role in the national road network, linking London to Reading and Winchester, but also to divert traffic in the new city, sustained success.

Probably 30% of the population of the city died, but the construction projects of Edward III brought many building workers to the city, perhaps double the population: the Black Death and the plagues that followed in 1361 to 72 was a 'boom' time for local economy. New people arrived in the city across the country and the continent to benefit from royal expenditure in the castle. The poet Geoffrey Chaucer worked at Windsor Castle as "clerk of works" in the 1391st
