Probate Clearance in Essex
A probate clearance after the passing of a relative is never a happy occasion but Essex House Clearances can provide a discreet, compassionate and efficient service to help you clear a flat, house, bungalow or any other property of unwanted items.
We are happy to act on behalf of yourself or agents, according to your needs. We offer property and probate clearances in Chelmsford and most of Essex.
In the case of probate clearances the aim is usually the same; to prepare a property for sale or occupation and involves us removing unwanted furniture and other household effects.
Where requested at the time of booking or with sufficient advance notice, we can also provide a cleaning service for the day of the clearance, to leave the property in a clean and tidy state.
Once we receive a request for a quote and in partnership with the relevant agents or legal representatives (if required) we will attend the property to make an assessment of the work to be carried out and provide a written quote for the work. This quote will be valid for an agreed period. If you or your agent cannot be present for the assessment we can collect the keys and make our assessment, providing photographich detailing if required.
We will try to reduce the costs of a probate clearance where any of the items in the property are readily saleable, but we should emphasise that we do not deal in used furniture, which in any case rarely commands more than nominal prices. With your agreement and where possible, we prefer in most cases to donate useable items to charitable causes, which in 2020 will include British Heart Foundation, Essex and Herts Air Ambulance, and Farleigh Hospice.
If you have a specific charity in mind we will gladly ask them what items they accept by way of donations. Please note that most charities will only accept items that are in good enough condition to resell in their shops and, in most cases, soft furnishings and electrical goods are not accepted, for safety reasons.
