Trading Entities

At Moses Rutland Chartered Surveyors, we specialise in providing valuation, rent review and lease renewal advice on some premises that trade as businesses and would normally be sold with the business.  These are valued as operational entities, and include:

  • hotels and guest accommodation
  • restaurants and some licensed premises
  • care homes, nursing homes and specialist care facilities
  • village post offices and convenience stores

We keep ourselves up-to-date with the ever-changing regulations and market conditions, and keep in regular contact with specialists in the market.



Hotels and Guesthouses

We have many years' experience valuing hotels, guesthouses and other holiday premises, whether with or without a Premises License.  These include large country hotels, seaside hotels and guesthouses, and many types of guest accommodation. 


We are familiar with the various requirements of the inspecting authorities, although we cannot guarantee that a property will satisfy a certain star rating, as this remains the decision of the regulator.


Licensed Premises

We are experienced valuers of restaurants and a variety of licensed premises. These are often mixed use properties, perhaps incorporating restaurant, bar, letting rooms and other facilities.


Residential Care Homes, Nursing Homes, Supported Lodgings, Specialist Care facilities & Schools

We are experienced in valuing a wide range of care facilities, from large care/nursing homes down to small homes and supported lodgings. Our expertise includes valuations, rent reviews and lease renewal advice of specialist care facilities, such as schools, homes and day centres for those with autism or other learning difficulties.


Since the formation of the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the coming into effect of the Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2009, this sector has been the subject of significant ongoing change in regulations and the upheaval that often causes. Our valuations reflect the current regulations and market perception, with their resultant effect on market values.


Village Post Offices and Convenience Stores

Village stores are an essential part of community life in a village or small town and are often sold as going concerns, with or without residential accommodation.



Trading premises cover a wide variety of properties and businesses, and certain specialist establishments may be outside our current field of expertise, such as public houses.  Please feel free to ask whether we are experienced in valuing the type of business you need appraising.
