Bonhams Art Collections, Estates & Valuations department offers a professional and confidential service tailored to the needs of our private clients.
In most cases, our starting point is the provision of valuations of our clients' collections, however diverse. We provide formal valuations for probate, market and insurance purposes, and advise upon potential sales from individual items to entire collections.
The department oversees the management of the entire Estates through auction, offering a single contact point for the client, or the Executor. Our team work in tandem with our fifty specialist departments, ensuring that the quality of our research and knowledge of our clients' collections is of the highest standard.
In addition we provide our clients and their professional advisors assistance in heritage taxation matters including the negotiation of values for IHT, Gift and Leaseback arrangements, and the Cultural Gifts Scheme.
