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 Hastings

The first mention of Hastings is located at the end of the century in the form of Hastingas 8. This comes from the old English name Hæstingas tribal, which means "people Hæsta", "family / followers Hæsta". Simeon of Durham record victory in 771 over Offa Hestingorum gens, that is, "Hastings, the tribal people", and the tribe itself has given the name Hastingleigh Kent. Name of location can be found in Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, marked Hæstingaceaster 1050, Hastings, and can be an alternate name of Hastings. However, the lack of archaeological remains or evidence of Roman fort in Hastings, according Hæstingaceaster can refer to a different solution, which is most likely based on the Roman ruins of Pevensey.

There is evidence of prehistoric settlements at the site of the city of flint arrowheads and objects from the Bronze Age found strong Iron Age have been excavated in the East and West Hills suggests a movement of the safety principles of the valley between the two, so the deal was already a port, when the Romans arrived in Britain for the first time in 55 BC. At that time, began to exploit the iron (Wealden rocks provide an abundant supply of ore) and if the port has been useful to them. One of the many local sites where iron was worked at Beauport Park, north of the city, which came to employ thousands of men and is considered to have been the third largest in the Roman Empire.

With the departure of the Romans in the city have suffered setbacks. Beauport site was abandoned, and the attack began and reservoirs. The coast of Sussex has always been subject to occasional violent storms, with additional risks for the operation of Tanks (eastward movement of shingle along the coast) coast was frequently changing. The Roman port of origin could now well be under the sea.

By the end of the port of Hastings, Saxon, has been moved to the east near the present city center, the Priory of Valley Stream, whose entrance was protected by the promontory of White Rock (since demolished).

Hastings has undergone over the years for lack of a natural harbor, and there have been attempts to create a protected harbor.

The project started last port 1896, but this also failed because of structural problems and rising costs exhausted all means available. Today it is a broken dam is all that remains of what could have been a great port. In 1897 the first stone was laid by a large concrete structure, but there was not enough money to finish the job and the "Harbour arm" remains uncompleted. It was partly blown up to prevent the possible use of German invasion forces during the Second World War. Fishing boats are still stored on and launched from the beach.
