'capital valuations for all purposes including sales, purchases and funding'

The requirements and format of valuations will vary considerably depending on their purpose. We are familiar with the general terms and conditions required by lending institutions, and any report commisioned will reflect those requirements. Frequently however valuations will be undertaken involving a less formal structure where, for example, a client seeks guidance over a heritable acquisition they themselves have identified. Core services may include the following:

- Site or property inspections

- Researching market evidence of both letting and heritable transactions

- Consideration of any existing or proposed lease documentation

- Discussion with the clients' lawyers over any lease restrictions or undue title conditions

- Conducting local authority enquiries as may be appropriate to the valuation (eg possibility of planning permission for alternative uses)

- Undertaking a valuation

- The preparation of a formal report with our recommendations in respect of capital, and where appropriate, rental value
