Market valuations of residential property are often required for matters such as
- Inheritance Tax (Probate)
- Marital disputes and settlement (divorce)
- Asset management
Curchod & Co's Chartered Surveyors are experienced in the local housing market. Our RICS Registered Valuer will provide an impartial professional opinion.
We will require to briefly view the house or flat so we can understand it's general size, quality and location, but this is not a survey. We then appraise the property against comparable information from other homes that have recently sold making appropriate allowances. A short report summarises the matters we consider to affect the value. We are always happy to discuss and justify our opinion.
Our valuations follow the "RICS Valuation – Professional Standards" criteria, often referred to as the Red Book. It provides an opinion of value for which the property would have been sold between a willing buyer and willing seller. It does not consider any special interest or conditional offers, but must reflect development potential if buyers would proceed unconditionally. The market value should not be confused with an estate agency asking price.
