A reinstatement cost assessment to determine the sum insured needed to rebuild a property requires careful consideration. For building insurance, an inadequate declared sum leaves the insured at risk whilst too great a sum will incur unneeded premiums.
Curchod & Co will calculate the estimated rebuild cost for houses, flats, shops, offices and industrial units. We use data from the RICS Building Cost Information Service, which is also utilised by the Association of British Insurers. We adjust this data to reflect many factors to suit your specific property including size, age, standards of construction and permanent fixtures, grounds, location, access etc.
Rebuild Cost Considerations:
Many flats, and a few houses, are owned leasehold. This long lease, perhaps originally for 99 or 125 years when granted, will expire and eventually the ownership could revert to the freeholder. The lease could be extended, for a premium, or sometimes a group of leaseholders may try to purchase the freehold to collectively enfranchise. We can follow the statutory based process, or advise on the effects of staying outside the legislation.
Curchod & Co are experienced in valuing the premiums for a lease extension or collective enfranchisement. We have acted for freeholders and leaseholders. The landlord will need compensation to reflect their reduced investment. This can be expensive. We can assess the sums that could be payable, assist in negotiations between the lessor and lessee to encourage settlement, and if necessary have made representations at Tribunal where prior agreement proved impossible.
Legislation provides a basis for the extension of leases, or a collective enfranchisement. This includes the Leasehold Reform, Housing & Urban Development Act 1993 and the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002. We reflect the varied Tribunal decisions and some Court rulings which continue to affect best practice.
