Reasons To Have a Professional Appraisal
-Equitable Estate Distribution and Estate Settlement Whether an estate has been left to heirs or must be divided due to divorce or dissolution, it is important to have a professionally prepared appraisal report. This report may be used for equitable estate distribution among beneficiaries, probate filing, allocating tangible assets in trusts, and IRS Form 706 estate settlement tax filing. We will prepare an unbiased valuation for any and/or all items in the estate. -Insurance Coverage Standard homeowner insurance policy coverage for certain categories of personal property is limited. These categories may include jewelry, fine arts, silver and collections. To obtain additional coverage for these types of items, a personal property appraisal report must be provided to your insurance company to establish the replacement cost. We will prepare your appraisal report for obtaining coverage on your valuable items. -Estate Personal Planning and Valuation Are you curious about value of an item or collection you own? Perhaps you are doing estate planning. Often people just want to know what their property is worth. We will prepare an appraisal report of the value of the items. -Insurance Claims Have you suffered a loss or damage to items in your home? We can help. For damage claims and losses to personal property, Lynn Roberts Appraisals will provide an appraisal report to document personal property items and support a claim settlement. -Charitable Donations Have something you would like to donate to a charitable organization, museum or school? A determination of the value of the property to be donated must be made before a donor knows how much may be how much of a tax donation they would get for donated property. We will prepare a personal property appraisal, which is necessary for the IRS non-cash donation form 8283 filing.
