Property ownership can contain many pitfalls and obtaining good, professional advice on a building’s condition, value, lease or title arrangements is essential. So as you avoid costly mistakes and make the best of your property, we are able to provide expert and thoroughly professional advice.
Our Chartered Surveyors are RICS Registered Valuers. We offer advice on most types of residential and commercial property. Much of our valuation work is carried out alongside our specialist lease extension, enfranchisement or building survey work.
Where applicable, our reports are prepared in accordance with the RICS Valuation – Professional Standards (The “Red Book”) (January 2014).
The Red Book defines Market Value as:
“The estimated amount for which an asset or liability should exchange on the valuation date between a willing buyer and a willing seller in an arm’s-length transaction, after proper marketing where parties had each acted knowledgeably, prudently and without compulsion.”
Our Valuation Report would normally include detail regarding:
- Property Location and Description
- Property Accommodation
- Property Condition and Obvious Development Potential
- Planning History and Council Tax
- Property Tenure Summary
- Factors Affecting Value
- Property Photographs
- Schedule of Comparable Property Evidence
- The Valuation
Properties are valued by experienced Chartered Surveyors who are in a position to provide an objective and unbiased valuation. Our firm has the knowledge, skills and understanding to undertake the valuation with independence and objectivity.
We hold £5,000,000 Professional Indemnity Insurance cover on a per claim basis.
