Residential & Commercial Valuations

Residential Valuations

 

Bank Mortgage Valuations;

Our clients include global banks commercial lenders and specialist property banks and funds.  We also act for specialist lenders involved in property investment and undertake some mortgage valuation work. Over the years we have seen the need for fully Red Book compliant valuation reports to address the need for more information to allow funding decisions by banks and lenders servicing the increasing market for residential investment.

 

Individual Property Valuations

With many years’ experience in the area of the London residential market, we have the in depth knowledge and investment requirements to provide clear objective reporting. Valuations for overseas investors in the London property market can range from individual units to appraisals of complete developments. Our experience and expertise means that we build a close relationship with such clients and develop an understanding of their investment strategy and requirements.  

With an increasing number of overseas investors in the prime London area we recognise that such investors require expert advice that goes beyond simply knowing the value of an asset.  We aim to add value to such investment decisions by providing our insight and local knowledge of the prime London areas.

 

Commercial Valuations

A thorough examination of floor space use, state of the air-conditioning and other facilities can produce evidence for a review and lead to rental and rates savings and a welcome increase to the balance sheet. Although the amount you may save is all relative to the size of your business. While surveyors doing residential valuations use sale prices fetched by similar buildings in the same locality as one of their main yardsticks, commercial property valuations are more complex: a key benchmark is price per square foot.

 

Few business premises are exactly alike; most have been adapted to suit particular needs, staffing numbers and manufacturing processes. It all takes time, local knowledge and a good database to research, reasons enough to hire professionals like us to do the valuation for you.

 

Insurance Reinstatement Valuations

It is imperative you undertake regular insurance valuations to ensure you are neither under or over-insured. If you are under-insured, you run the risk of not being able to reinstate the building; or potentially be paying a higher insurance premium than necessary if over-insured.

 

Portfolio Valuations

We aim to maximise the value of your assets. We have the skills and experience to provide you with an accurate valuation of both commercial and residential properties within your diverse portfolio. We can also provide you with sensitivity analysis, along with acquisition and disposal advice.

 

Schedules of Condition

A Schedule of Condition should be undertaken at the start of any new commercial lease. This includes an inspection of the property to document its condition, clearly identifying any potential issues thus minimising dilapidations liabilities.
