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 Abingdon

The place has been occupied since the beginning of the middle Iron Age and the remains of an Iron Age defensive enclosure late (or oppidum) is located in the city center. The oppidum was in use in the Roman occupation.

Abingdon Abbey was founded in the Saxon era, perhaps the seventh century, but its early history is confused by numerous legends, invented to raise their status and explain the place name. The name seems to mean "the hill of a man named AEBBA, or a woman named Aebbe", perhaps the saint to whom the church of St Ebbe Oxford was spent (or different Aebbe of Coldingham Aebbe Oxford). However Abingdon is located in a valley and not on a hill. It is believed that the name was given to a place above Chilswell Boars Hill, and the name was moved to its current location, when the abbey was relocated.

In 1084, William the Conqueror celebrated Easter at the abbey, and then left his son, the future Henry I, to be educated.

In the 13 th and 14 centuries Abingdon was a flourishing agricultural center, extensive trade in wool, and a famous weaving and clothing manufacturing industries. Abbot seems to have kept the market very ancient times, and statutes for the organization of markets and fairs were of different rulers, from Edward I to George II. In 1337 there was a famous riot in protest against the control of the Abbot of these markets, where several monks were killed.

After the dissolution of the abbey in 1538, the town sank into decay, and in 1555 when you receive a representation of its pitiable condition, Mary I granted a charter establishing a mayor, two bailiffs, twelve chief burgesses, and sixteen middle-class high school, the mayor of being committed to the market, coroner and justice of the peace. Present Christ's Hospital originally belonged to the Guild of the Holy Cross, on the dissolution of which Edward VI founded the almshouses in place under its current name.

The Council has the power to choose one of the Burgess House, and this right continued until the redistribution of seats by the year 1885. The clerk of the city and other officials appointed the city limits, and described in great detail. Charter later, Elizabeth I, James I, James II, George II and George III made no significant changes. James II, the company changed the style to the mayor, twelve years, and twelve civilians.

In 1790, Abingdon Lock was built to replace the navigation to the city by a moat Swift. In 1810, opened the Wilts and Berks Canal, connecting Abingdon with Semington on the Kennet & Avon Canal. Abingdon was an important link between the major industrial centers such as Bristol, London, Birmingham and Black Country. In 1856, in Abingdon Railway opened, linking the city to the Great Western Railway at Radley. The Wilts and Berks Canal was abandoned in 1906, but a voluntary trust is now working to restore and reopen. Abingdon railway station was closed to passengers in September 1963. The line remained open for freight until 1984, including service in the MG car factory, which opened in 1929 and closed in October 1980 as part of a rationalization plan for British Leyland.

The nearest station is Radley, two miles (3 km). Abingdon was served by a branch line and yet Abingdon station were closed in 1963. Much of the original branch of Abingdon is now a bike path, while the land on which standing has been extensively renovated and is now the site of a Waitrose store and surrounded by a large number of new apartments and houses.

Abingdon became the county town of Berkshire sometimes after receiving its Royal Charter in 1556. Criminal courts were held in Abingdon in 1570, but in the 17th century, competing with the reading of the situation of the county. County Hall and Courthouse was built between 1678 and 1682, to claim that status. The building, now Abingdon County Hall Museum, was supposedly designed by Christopher Kempster, who worked with Sir Christopher Wren. However, failure to participate fully in Abingdon with the railway revolution, accepting only a branch line, left out of the city in favor of reading that has become the county seat in 1869. The company was reformed by the Municipal Reform Act of 1835 and was abolished by the Local Government Act 1972. In 1974, under local government reorganization, Abingdon became part of the county non-metropolitan county of Oxfordshire and the headquarters of the new White Horse Vale District Council, with Abingdon became a civil parish council city.

Since 1980, Abingdon has hosted a series of data communications companies, with many of the city is based on scientific and industrial parks. This, and the result of Abingdon proximity to academic and scientific institutions of Oxford, the city has seen the entry of young professionals to take up residence in the city in many residential areas, as Peachcroft.
