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 Putney SW15

Putney historically formed part of the county of Surrey.

Putney appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Putelei. It was noted that it was not a manor, but obtained twenty shillings from the ferry or market toll at Putney belonging to Mortlake.

Famous crossing at Putney was that of Cardinal Wolsey in 1529 on his 'disgrace' in falling out of favour with Henry VIII on ceasing to be the holder of the Great Seal of England. As they was riding up Putney Hill they was overtaken by of the royal chamberlains who introduced him with a ring as a token of the continuance of his majesty's favour. When the Cardinal had heard these lovely words of the king, they quickly lighted from his mule and kneeled down in the dirt on both knees, holding up his hands for joy, said "When I think about the joyful news that you have brought to me, I could do no less than greatly rejoice. Every word pierces so my heart, that the sudden joy surmounted my memory, having no regard or respect to the place; but I thought it my duty, that in the same place where I received this comfort, to laud praise God on my knees, and most humbly to render unto my sovereign lord my most hearty thanks for the same."

The ferry was mentioned in the household accounts of Edward I (1272 to 1307) where Robert the Ferryman of Putney and other sailors were paid 3/6d for carrying a great part of the royal relatives across the Thames and also taking the king and his relatives to Westminster.

The Lord General hath caused a bridge to be built on barges and lighters over the Thames between Fulham and Putney, to convey his army and artillery over in to Surrey, to follow the king's forces; and they hath ordered that forts shall be erected at each finish thereof to guard it; but for the present the seamen, with long boats and shallops filled with ordnance and musketeers, lie there on the river to secure it.

The first bridge of any kind between the parishes of Fulham and Putney was built in the coursework of the Civil War: after the Battle of Brentford in 1642, the Parliamentary forces built a bridge of boats between Fulham and Putney. According to an account from the period:

The first permanent bridge between Fulham Putney was done in 1729, and was the second bridge to be built across the Thames in London (after London Bridge). story runs that "in 1720 Sir Robert Walpole was returning from seeing George I at Kingston and being in a rush to get to the House of Commons rode together together with his servant to Putney to take the ferry across to Fulham. The ferry boat was on the opposite side, however and the waterman, who was drinking in the Swan, ignored the calls of Sir Robert and his servant and they were obliged to take another route. Walpole vowed that a bridge would replace the ferry."

The bridge was a wooden structure and lasted for 150 years, when in 1886 it was replaced by the stone bridge that stands today.

The Prince of Wales apparently "was often inconvenienced by the ferry when returning from hunting in Richmond park and asked Walpole to make use of his influence by supporting the bridge."

Regular visitor was Queen Elizabeth I who often visited Putney from 1579 to 1603, often visiting Mr John Lacy. They was said to "honour Lacy along with her company more often than any of her subjects", often staying for to days.
