Our range of RICS property Valuations
RICS Surveyor Valuation
So important to have a survey on what is likely to be the most expensive purchase of a lifetime. Failure to do so can be very expensive. A hidden defect is just that and needs a trained eye to discover.
Commercial Property Valuation
Almost always necessary to have a valuation when purchasing. The market can vary significantly area to area for identical properties. Only a valuation by a an experienced local valuer can reveal these differences.
Pension / SIPP Property Valuation
A regulatory requirement for Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) holders on a time elapsed basis. The valuation ensures the property value continues to accurately reflect the legal requirements of the Pension Trustee.
Probate Property Valuation
An important valuation to ensure that neither too much or too little Inheritance Tax is paid to HMRC.
Help to Buy / Shared Ownership Staircasing Valuation
An RICS valuation is a requirement when you are purchasing a further share in a shared ownership property – known as ’staircasing’. Or when you are selling your property which was bought using the Help to Buy scheme, or if you are wishing to pay off your Help to Buy loan.
Matrimonial Property Valuation
Valuations for Divorce are often emotive and therefore the impartial advice and accuracy of an independently minded valuer are essential.
Property Inheritance Tax Valuation
Future planning for inheritance has become more important as values continue to rise. The key element is to ensure that a valuation does not trigger a future Capital gains tax problem
HMO Development Valuation
The conversion of a single dwelling to a House in Multiple Occupation has attracted property investors in recent years. However, a detailed appraisal of conversion costs, potential income and yields, and the likely occupation rates etc, may reveal that the investment is not viable. The investor may not be local and the opinion of a Surveyor with local knowledge is a must prior to conversion.
Insurance Reinstatement Valuation
One of the most misunderstood valuations. There can frequently be a significant difference between the market value of a property and the cost of replacement. As much as triple is not uncommon.
