Satisfied customers include members of the public, solicitors, executors, and estate agents and other businesses who recommend us to others and regularly return to Lancashire Home Life Services due to the high level of service we provide at extremely cost effective rates. We spread our overheads across the extensive range of property services our company provides, meaning we are able to offer our property and house clearance services at some of the regions most cost effective rates.
Our proficient property clearance specialists are on hand to take away the stress and strain that property clearance can cause. Whether you’re downsizing, moving home, clearing a house after bereavement, a business moving premises or closing down, or a landlord having a clear up, our property clearance specialists will ensure that the contents of your property are removed safely, efficiently and responsibly.
Being a close family run business, we can only begin to imagine how emotional and overwhelming it must be having suffered a bereavement to then have to deal with the house clearance arrangements. This is where the experience of our house clearance specialists is invaluable. They carry out services with discretion and care and with as little disruption as possible, allowing you to focus on other matters.
If you find visiting the house distressing or live too far away, we can arrange to collect the keys from the executor, solicitor or estate agent at the time of providing you with a quote, and again if we carry out the clearance. Alternatively, where you would like to be present during the clearance you will be treated with kindliness and compassion.
Our specialist probate valuation team regularly carry out comprehensive and independent assessments of assets and are experienced in all aspects of estate administration. All probate valuations are prepared in accordance with HMRC and can be used to ascertain if IHT (inheritance tax) is payable on an estate.
Most insurers stipulate that they are to be informed where the property is unoccupied for thirty days or more and then are likely to impose conditions such as, a minimum standard of security on window and door locks, the temperature to be kept at 15°c minimum and the house to be regularly monitored. If you don’t live nearby it can be difficult to manage the home according to the home insurance requirements.

Many homeowners and landlords in Preston and the surrounding areas require our services when buying, selling or letting a property to make it more comfortable or appealing. Desirability and value can be massively affected when selling or letting a tired looking home.
Our skilled tradesmen will help you to enhance your property’s visual appeal, both inside and outside, making your house look good to potential buyers or tenants and in those all important photographs. People form an impression from kerbside and within seconds of seeing your property, so make sure that yours is the better looking house on the street. Once in the front door, the first minute of a potential home viewing is imperative. A positive perception in the first minute puts people into a great frame of mind and makes them more likely to sign on the dotted line.
Homes that require contents clearance, modernisation or repairs can take years to sell and are more often than not sold to investors at a massively reduced cost. A tidy and modernised house is more likely to achieve a quick sale and maximum return. By temporarily investing a minimal amount of money into the house for repairs or renovation you could gain substantially more when sold.
We specialise in helping our customers to gain their property’s true value at the lowest possible cost. From minor repairs or renovation we can provide you with the right person for the job. We employ approved tradesmen for skilled jobs and handymen for odd jobs and they are all available to help with property improvements. We also employ gardeners for any gardening requirements.
Whether you need a property cleared because you have a new tenant, have had a difficult tenant or are simply replacing furniture, our clearance specialists will carry out their service quickly and efficiently and in a confidential and diligent manner. We will tailor our service to meet your specific requirements to prevent loss of rental income or to avoid inconvenience to tenants.
