Why do you need a valuation?
If you are a home buyer, there will be occasions when you require a valuation and not a survey. You may be confident about the condition of your new home, but if you are paying cash, or your mortgage lender has not provided a valuation, you might need reassurance that you are paying a reasonable price.
There are many reasons why people may need a valuation, including: –
- Purchase or sale.
- Help to Buy Scheme valuations. Please click HERE for more details.
- Shared ownership/shared equity.
- Matrimonial or probate purposes.
What do you get?
- A visual inspection of the inside and outside of the property by one of our qualified RICS Registered Valuers
- A clear and concise 3-4 page written report.
- Summary of the type, location and description of property.
- A comment on any major matters which might affect value such as serious structural movement or dampness.
- A section on matters for your legal advisor to check.
- A ‘Market Value’ in line with RICS Guidance.
- An insurance rebuilding cost can be provided for a small extra charge if requested.
We are always happy to discuss your specific requirements, and a valuer would be pleased to speak with you directly without obligation about the service we offer. We are also happy to talk through the valuation once completed.
Please note that a valuation is not a survey, but the valuer will highlight any major items noticed during the course of a brief inspection which might have a material effect on value.
