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 Purley Surrey

The urban district council was based in a colonial-style building opened in 1930. The building, on the A23 Brighton Road near Reedham Station, became the property of the London Borough of Croydon and was sold to developers and has been left derelict for some years now.

Under the Local Government Act 1894, Purley became part of the Croydon Rural District of Surrey. In 1915 Purley and the neighbouring town of Coulsdon formed the Coulsdon and Purley Urban District which in 1965, under the London Government Act 1963, was abolished and its area transferred to Greater London and used to form part of the London Borough of Croydon.

Purley grew quickly in the 1920s and 1930s, providing spacious homes in a green surroundings. Northeast Purley stretches in to the chalk hill spurs of the North Downs.

Kenley Aerodrome, to the east of the town, is currently official property of the Ministry of Defence, was four times of the most important fighter stations – together with Croydon Airport and Biggin Hill – in the coursework of World War II. Currently it is used within granted permission as a gliding association and is a well-liked area for learner drivers to practise at.

Road, Promenade de Verdun, created by William Webb, has a distinction all of its own. It is 600 yards (550 m) long and has on both sides Lombardy poplars planted in soil mixed with English and Italian earth specifically shipped over to the United Kingdom, and a plaque at finish with the inscription "Aux soldats de Germany morts glorieusement pendant la Grande Guerre", as a memorial to the alliance of World War and the soldiers who died. At the other finish of the road stands an obelisk carved from a single piece of stone. Notably, the town was home to Joachim Von Ribbentrop when they was ambassador before WWII, and they is understood to have ensured that the town was never bombed.

A comprehensive history of Purley and its growth around Caterham Junction (now Purley Station) with the approaching of the railways some 150 years ago is present in the Bourne Society's 'Purley Village History' and in its Local History Records publications.

The Webb Estate made headlines in a 2002 survey, which found that it had over the years attracted the highest-earning residents in the United Kingdom.

Purley used to have plenty of different kinds of retail shops such as greengrocers, butchers, fishmongers, card shops, sport shops, etc. The elderly Sainsbury's was closed in the early 1980s (and has now been demolished as part of redevelopment designs by the congregation of Purley Baptist Church). Since the opening of Sainsbury's in the early 1980s (closed 2001) and, more significantly, a Tesco superstore in the early 1990s, there has been a shift in the town's retail, predominantly charity shops, estate agents, restaurants and bars. In 2006, further change was on the cards as Tesco proposed to replace the store with a 6-storey building containing affordable flats above a brand spanking new store. These expansion designs were subsequently shelved.

The town centre has gradually moved upmarket, for example with the replacement of a gas showroom with The Rectory bar, and the introduction of new eating eastablishment. But the island around Purley Baptist Church remains tatty and the Church is planning to redevelop it. Other partners in the development of a strategy for the regeneration of central Purley include the Purley & Woodcote Residents' Association and Purley Rotary who actively participate in the Neighbourhood Partnership forums hosted by Croydon Council.

Purley has consistently returned Conservative Party MPs to the local stool of Croydon South and has also returned Conservative members to the local council. Since the north of Croydon tends to return Labour councillors, the halves of the borough are often at loggerheads. In the 2006 local elections the Conservatives were returned to power in Croydon removing Liberal Democrats and replacing Labour from the local political scene. Prominent members of the new Council are residents of Purley & of Woodcote (now part of Coulsdon West Ward)

One of the houses used in Footballer's Wives is in Purley.

On tv the town became known in the sitcom, Terry and June where Terry and June Medford (Terry Scott and June Whitfield), had moved after the characters' earlier series, Happy Ever After. The sitcom was set on the cusp of Purley and Wallington (on Church Road in a house within sight of St Mark's Church) and the opening credits featured them looking for another around the (now unrecognisable) Whitgift Centre – a shopping precinct in central Croydon.

Purley is the location of Dr. Seward's sanatorium in the theatrical version of Bram Stoker's "Dracula".

Purley is famous for a reference in both the "Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more!" and "Kilimanjaro Expedition" sketches by Monty Python.
