Valuation & Surveying Services

Whether buying, insuring, raising finance or dealing with taxation issues for property you will probably need a valuation or survey. We offer a wide range of services as follows:-

Professional Valuation Services

We undertake valuations for:-

Mortgage Valuation

This is a valuation based on a limited inspection of the property on the instructions of your mortgage lender to ensure that it is worth the money they are lending you. It is unlikely to cover items of detail that would be picked up in a RICS HomeBuyer Report and is solely for your lender's use.

Property Purchase Survey and Valuation

If you are buying a property without a mortgage then this private survey and valuation report will assist your consideration of your proposed purchase by reporting on its construction, accommodation, market value, buildings insurance reinstatement value and any major defects affecting value. Like a Mortgage Valuation it is based on a limited inspection of the property.

RICS HomeBuyer Report

This is a survey done to a standard format set out by RICS which is most suitable for conventional properties built within the last 150 years, which are in reasonable condition. It will identify what our surveyor considers to be the most important issues and by applying condition ratings to elements of the building, we will tell you whether defects are serious or urgent. It also includes the surveyor's opinion of the market value and reinstatement cost (which you will need for buildings insurance purposes). It focuses on matters that, in the surveyor's opinion, may affect the value of the property if they are not dealt with as well as including other valuable information.

Secured Lending Valuations

We carry out secured lending valuations of commercial and rural property on the instructions of the banks, often having been nominated initially by their customers. The valuations are undertaken by a Chartered Surveyor within our firm in compliance with the RICS Valuation Standards (Red Book) in addition to any specific requirements of the lender.

Please contact our office with your requirements and we will be pleased to provide you with a quotation for the appropriate service.
