Valuations form the foundations of modern property markets.
The confidence they provide stands behind a Company’s financial accounts, the loans made by lending institutions, developments that are to be undertaken or the management decisions that are enacted. Insight and accuracy are everything.
We understand the dynamics that impact on a valuation, the regulatory principles that underline them, the sector and local market knowledge and the importance of a succinct and timely service. Our national network of offices provide exceptional insight into a wide range of asset classes, from the traditional offices, retail, industrial and residential sectors, through to evolving operational real estate markets including hotels, leisure, education, healthcare, infrastructure and minerals.
We have a team of more than 130 RICS registered valuers, each with a unique understanding of the sectors in which they specialise. We value properties for purposes including loan security, financial reporting, expert witness, acquisitions and disposals, best value, taxation and development viability. Accuracy and quality are reinforced through our valuation panel, with changes in market conditions, perceptions and sentiment constantly monitored through engagement with capital markets and agency colleagues.
Our team will give you the confidence you need to make the decisions that matter to your business.
