Our valuation will take in to account the property condition and any repairs that are recommended or required.

Residential ValuationsIn addition to the normal requirements for a valuation by an RICS Registered Valuer, reports compliant with the Charities Actsand the Charities (Qualified Surveyors’ Reports) Regulations 1992 demand additional matters to be considered and reported upon, such as the most appropriate form of marketing (for disposals) and whether repairs, planning applications or other courses of action should be considered first.

Valuers must demonstrate the appropriate level of impartiality, whilst fulfilling their statutory obligations alongside the needs of their client, and must give proper consideration to the charity’s obligations to its own stated objectives.
