What will we find next?

As part of my role within the probate team at Biddle and Webb, I prepare inventories and valuations for deceased estates, and also assist with court of protection valuations. We have recently undertaken clearance of the sellable items from a deceased estate in Henley-In-Arden. In the process we have retrieved a vintage Fordson tractor, uncovered…

Probate Training

Throughout my training in probate valuations I have gained a breadth of experience working in a professional environment, I have been surprised by the sheer variety of contents belonging to estates from war medals and Royal Mint Jubilee coins to tractors and rotavators. I started my training through shadowing Jeremy and Ellie, both enhancing and…

Why use a High Street Agent?

If you sold your property at £200,000 with an online agent, you would pay around £1,000. But a traditional estate agent charging 1 per cent or 1.25per cent commission would cost £2,000 or £2,500 respectively plus VAT. However, it pays to look beyond the headline figures, because some sellers using online firms do not ‘save’…

Wine Al Fresco!

It’s somewhat surprising that in 2017 people still worry about how the wine they choose will be perceived by their friends. Shouldn’t it simply be a matter of choosing a grape, style or region you really like and enjoying it? Introduce food into the equation and it can get even more complicated. On the continent…

Biddle & Webb teams up with Winterbourne House & Garden

Edwardian Splendour in the heart of Birmingham. The tarmac driveway leading to Winterbourne may not be familiar to the family who lived here, but the wonky roof line (an intentional design feature) and the crunch of gravel underfoot in the walled garden would make them feel much more at home. Winterbourne was built in 1903…
