However the main thing that was stolen or thrown away were Ulta sound pictures of a child i miscarried late last year. the finance company has asked me to appoint a fair value on then. To me they are priceless as i can never get them back for obvious reasons. what is a fair range for photos of this kind?

I am so sorry you lost those images. I understand how difficult it must be.

Unfortunately, there is no way to assign a value to those priceless images.

There is no way to assign a market value and the lender is not going to reimburse sentimental value.

So, ask for the a five hundred dollars and let them come back with a counteroffer.

They will never come up with what the images are worth to you, but you should be able to reach some sort of compromise.

If (and only if) you are completely satisfied that your question is answered, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.

There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
