A friend of mine bought a flat with an Interest In Possession trust for her parents to live in the property. She inherited the property a few years ago but there was no official probate value done as there were no other assets.

She sold it recently, does a professional retrospective valuation or would HMRC accept an estimate based on similar properties sold at the time of inheritance?

HMRC will accept a professional valuation, or even an estimated value, but make sure they are made aware of the fact that it is a valuation. If they don't accept it, they'll refer it to the VOA for a negotiated value.
With a pinch of salt take what I say, but don't exceed your RDA
