Property valuations and surveys are required for a wide range of purposes, and instructions are received by our surveyors and valuers regularly from property owners, solicitors, accountants, banks and other lenders.
The majority of formal valuations required are provided in accordance with the RICS Valuation – Professional Standards (‘Red Book’). Whether acting in an expert witness capacity in relation to a Court hearing, undertaking a RICS Homebuyers Survey, or advising on a sale or purchase of a property. Our chartered surveyors and valuers act with professionalism at all times and utilise their expert market knowledge to provide appropriate and accurate valuations.
Taxation often necessitates the requirement for valuations, including probate valuations for inheritance tax purposes, and valuations for capital gains tax. In instances where negotiation is required with the District Valuers Office and/or HMRC over taxation valuations, our chartered surveyors and valuers have considerable experience and can help achieve the best outcome.
