Why is RICS Property Valuation Important?
Instructing an RICS-accredited property valuer ensures an unbiased opinion about the fair and accurate value of the property.
Chartered surveyors are formally qualified in property valuation procedures and write a report to substantiate their conclusions, making it far more comprehensive than estate agent valuation.
The surveyor valuation assesses how the property was built, its location and its condition. A hidden defect that could affect the house value requires a trained eye to be discovered!
Property value highly depends on its location, thus local property expertise is essential when conducting a valuation. We have years of experience for house valuation in Lancaster as well as in the North Lancashire and South Cumbria areas.
We specialise in providing expert services, including RICS valuation of development property. Our dedicated team of professionals ensures accuracy and reliability in every valuation, supporting your real estate endeavours with precision and confidence.
Available property valuations
An RICS Help to Buy/ Shared Ownership Valuation is a requirement when you are purchasing a further share in a shared ownership property – known as ’staircasing’. Also, this valuation is required when you are selling your property that was bought using the Help to Buy scheme, or if you are wishing to pay off your Help to Buy loan.
Probate Property Valuation
An important valuation to ensure that neither too much or too little Inheritance Tax is paid to HMRC
Matrimonial Property Valuation
Property valuations in an event of 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 property 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 Building Surveyor with local knowledge and experience in HMO development is a must prior to conversion.
Insurance Reinstatement Assessment
Valuing a property can be a complex matter, often leading to misconceptions. It's important to recognise that there can be a significant disparity between the market value of a property and its replacement cost. In fact, it's not uncommon for the replacement cost to be as much as three times higher. Market value refers to the estimated selling price in the current real estate market, while the replacement cost represents the expenses involved in reconstructing the property exactly as it is. Various factors, including location, demand, and unique features, influence these valuations. Gaining a comprehensive understanding of both valuations is crucial when assessing the true worth of a property. Learn more about insurance reinstatement assessments.
