What is a RICS Valuation?

RICS Valuations are recognised as having legal status, unlike those produced by estate agents. They carry more weight due to the stringent procedures that a RICS Valuation Surveyor must adhere to.

Not all chartered surveyors can carry out valuation work. A RICS Valuation Report must be completed by a RICS Registered Valuer.

When is a RICS Valuation Required?

Help to Buy Valuations

The Target Government Help to Buy scheme has helped thousands of people to buy their home, by offering a contribution towards the initial purchase. This means that the Government continue to own a percentage of your home. You may decide that you wish to buy back some, or all of the Help to Buy share of your home. If you do, you will need a RICS Help to Buy Survey (otherwise known as a Help to Buy valuation Report).

It is recommended that you have your valuation carried out by a RICS Regulated Company, such as CJ Bloor Property Consultants.

Probate Valuations

After a family member has passed away, their estate – money, property, possessions – will need to be valued so that a Grant of Representation (the legal right to deal with the estate) can be obtained.

The purpose of carrying out a professional probate valuation is to:

  • ascertain an accurate value of the estate left behind by the deceased
  • enable the executor to assess whether there is sufficient value in the estate to cover any liabilities left by the deceased
  • calculate how much (if any) Inheritance Tax is payable on the deceased’s estate

How will a RICS valuation be calculated?

In the UK, there are three common approaches that are likely to be adopted when valuing residential and commercial property:

Market Approach – This approach adopts the principle that the value of one property may be derived by comparing it directly with market transactions for similar properties. It is widely used in the valuation of residential, rural and commercial real estate and is sometimes used for the valuation of land and other real estate assets.

Income Approach – The income approach is used to value real estate that produces an income for the investor. There are two methods that fall within the income approach: the investment (or income capitalisation) method and the profits method. In the conventional investment method, the value is derived from the net rental income and a capitalisation factor based on the expected annual rate of return. These are both normally established using comparable evidence.

Cost Approach – The cost approach, also known as the depreciated replacement cost approach, is used to value real estate that does not usually sell on the open market (for example, public buildings), and for which comparable evidence does not exist. In some jurisdictions the cost approach is used for proposed or recently built properties. This approach is based on two components: the depreciated cost of the building element and the value of the land. Figures for both these components will be obtained from comparable evidence.
