What is affecting the value of your property?

Valuations are required for the majority of sales and purchases of real estate. The purpose of the valuation report is to determine exactly how much the premises is worth and is often used by banks or lending companies as proof of the property’s value before lending, for a mortgage for example.

Factors affecting valuation figures

Only registered valuers are qualified to conduct valuations. They are regulated the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, more commonly known as RICS.

When selecting your valuer, ensure they can demonstrate considerable knowledge of property deals in the locality of the premises to be valued, are qualified Chartered Surveyors (MRICS) and hold the RICS Registered Valuer accreditation.

Independent firms of surveyors are a good first port of call for your residential or commercial valuation requirements. There will often be several highly skilled professionals, each with various specialisms meaning you’re more likely to get a good match in skills and knowledge to your specific property requirements.

The valuation of property is given based on an educated and trained opinion formed from the consideration of the price of similar property type in the area and a review of the assets and detriments of the property.

Valuers’ top tip

“It is in your best interests to get a Chartered Surveyor and RICS registered valuer to conduct valuation work as it is likely to be rejected by your bank or lender without these accreditations.”

The valuation process

  • The valuer considers the property beginning with an internal and external inspection. They will also visit the surrounding neighbourhood and bring this into consideration. Both the assets and the detriments of the property are noted.
  • For residential property, the gross living space, overall plot size, construction quality, layout, size and location are taken into consideration. Condition, heating, landscaping, decking, fencing, renovations and local amenities will also play a part in the overall valuation of the property.
  • The next step is for the valuer to analyse local market sales, (historical and current) for your area comparable to your premises. This comparison draws on a number of industry sources as well as their own personal knowledge of the local market.
