Bonhams runs a dedicated international Trusts & Estates Department to assist fiduciaries, executors and families with the intricacies of valuing and advising on the disposal of fine art, antiques, motor cars, jewellery, wine and other valuable personal property.

With a global team of directors and valuers based in the US and UK, working in conjunction with our specialist departments in London, New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong, we take pride in offering a bespoke service tailored to clients' individual requirements.

Appraisals
Bonhams Trusts & Estates team can provide a complimentary initial assessment of the property, either through photographs or by an in-person walk through, to determine the presence of valuables and an approximate cost for an appraisal. Our illustrated reports for estate planning, equitable distribution or estate tax filing are compliant with all IRS (US) and HMRC (UK) requirements.

Sales
In the event of a disposal of the assets, our specialist valuers can provide auction estimates along with an imaginative, individually tailored sale plan that may include special marketing initiatives and terms of sale.

Executors will regularly be updated with the sales process and a member of the Trusts & Estates Department will always be on hand if additional information is required.

We are also able to further assist with: a complete clearance of a property in coordination with third-party auction platforms, arranging short term storage, shipping and transport for beneficiaries, guidance regarding suitable restorers and conservators as well as fine art insurance companies.
