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 Barnes SW13

Barnes is a riverside London suburb in southwest London and in terms of local governance falls under the London Borough of Richmond on Thames. It is located around 5.8 miles (9.3 km) west south-west of Charing Cross in a loop of the River Thames, with Hammersmith Bridge at the north finish. Barnes has a lot of 18th and 19th century buildings of exceptional quality, and is often noted for its historic village area centred on the pond, forming the Barnes Village conservation area.

Historically in the past part of Surrey, Barnes appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Berne". It was held by the Canons of St Paul of London. Its Domesday assets were: 8 hides, paying tax with Mortlake; 5 ploughs, 20 acres (81,000 m2) of meadow. It rendered (in total): £7.[1] The original Norman chapel of St Mary's, Barnes' village church, was built at some point between 1100 and 1150. It was subsequently extended in the early thirteenth century, and again in c1485 and 1786. After a major fire in 1978 destroyed the Victorian and Edwardian additions to the building, restoration work was done in 1984.

Some of the oldest riverside housing in London is to be found on The Terrace, a road lined with Georgian mansions which runs along the west bend of the river. Construction of these mansions began as early as 1720.[3] Gustav Holst and Ninette de Valois lived in houses on this stretch, both of which have corresponding blue plaques. The Terrace also has an original red brick police station, built in 1891. It was recently remodelled as apartments but still preserves the original features.

The pink-fronted Rose House facing the area's pond dates to the 17th century, while the area's oldest is one one time belonging to Henry Fielding which also faces the pond, parts of which date to the 16th century.

The listed Barnes Railway Bridge was originally constructed in 1849 by Joseph Locke, and dominates the view of the river from The Terrace on the western side of Barnes. In 2009 a project began to re-paint the bridge.

Castelnau, in north Barnes and on the banks of the river, has a small church, Holy Trinity. The area between Castelnau and Lonsdale Road contains a 1930s council estate (including roads such as Nowell Road, Stillingfleet Road and Washington Road), mostly consisting of "Boot Houses", constructed by the Henry Boot company. These houses no longer meet building regulations and need to have their outside walls reconstructed. This means that new buyers cannot receive a mortgage on un-reconstructed houses and so residents of this area have usually lived in their houses for a long time (in some cases it being passed down).

In recent years, Barnes has been cited as the leading area in the United Kingdom for net shopping, with £150 pa per head being spent.

Barnes Common is an important open space and a local nature reserve. Its 120 acres (0.49 km2) dominate the south of Barnes, providing a rural setting to the village and a wealth of habitats including acid grassland, scrub, woodland and wetland. Beverley Brook passes through part of the common before meeting the Thames at Putney.

In April 2001 Barnes Pond dramatically emptied overnight. Although a broken drain was suspected no cause could be conclusively found.[6] The pond was redeveloped and landscaped with funding from Richmond Council and the local community.

Barn Elms reservoirs were turned in to a wetland habitat and bird sanctuary in 1995. The giant majority of the WWT London Wetland Centre comprises areas of standing open water, grazing marsh and reedbed. It is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest as it supports nationally important wintering populations of Shoveler (Anas clypeata) and Teal (Anas crecca).

A popular cultural attraction is the former Olympic Studios on Church Road. Relocated from central London in 1966, the studios played host to lots of of rock and pop's greatest stars down the decades, from The Beatles, who recorded the original tracks of "All You Need Is Love" in Barnes, to The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Queen, Eric Clapton, Ella Fitzgerald, The Verve, Large Assault, Duran Duran, Coldplay, Madonna.

Facing the Thames, at the finish of Lonsdale Road, The Bull's Head pub is named the suburban Ronnie Scott's and was one of the first and most important jazz venues in Britain from the postwar years onward.

The Elderly Sorting Office arts centre adjoining to Barnes Pond has become known as a venue for art and fringe theater, hosting numerous exhibitions and theater productions, and a regular auction. Well-known names to have performed at the venue include Patricia Hodge, Stephanie Cole, Timothy West, Julian Glover, and Robert Pattinson.

The area in and around Barnes Pond is host to several open-air and covered markets each month. Barnes Common is the site of the Barnes Fair, held each year in the first week of July and organised by the Barnes Community Association (BCA), with their headquarters in Rose House, a unique 17th Century pink-painted building on Barnes High Street.
