Typical Purposes for our Red Book Valuations

What is a Red Book Valuation?

The ‘Red Book’ is the name given to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyor’s (RICS) Valuation Professional Standards. It is published every 2 or 3 years and details the set of mandatory rules and best practice guidelines for RICS Registered Valuers to follow when undertaking a valuation. A Red Book valuation is a professional valuation of a property which can only be undertaken by an RICS registered surveyor. It provides a trusted, unbiased valuation report that adheres to stringent professional standards outlined in the Red Book. Instructing a Red Book valuation means you can be certain that you will receive a properly researched valuation prepared by a qualified and independent RICS Registered Valuer working to a set of established and consistent standards.

How Does It Work?

A desktop valuation is a type of valuation undertaken remotely by a surveyor using data from a number of digital resources without the need to physically inspect the property. Our desktop valuations are RICS Red Book compliant and can be used for a range of scenarios including Capital Gains Tax, Inheritance Tax (Probate), Help to Buy (Shared Ownership), Insolvency, and Matrimonial (Divorce).

All you need to do is complete our simple, jargon-free online form which will ask you for details about your property with the option to include any additional details and photographs that you feel could be relevant to the valuation.  We are always available by email or phone if you need to discuss anything prior to submitting the form. Because our desktop valuations are undertaken remotely we can pass the cost savings onto our clients. Our fee is £175 + VAT which could potentially save you hundreds of pounds when compared to instructing a local surveyor to physically inspect your property.
