Both landlords and tenants will require valuations for a variety of reasons, e.g., capital valuations for acquisition, balance sheet valuations for funding, tax valuations for inheritance of capital gains tax or lease extensions to buy more years. Commercial occupiers or their landlords may need a rental valuations for rent review purposes, and any lender will require an assessment of the cost of rebuilding a property for insurance purposes. We value properties for lenders, for family trusts, private investors, investment funds, and for individuals buying a home.
An asset valuation is the term used to describe a range of situations where the value of an asset needs to be established but in a situation where there is not an arm’s length open market transaction happening, ie, no buyer or seller or no deemed disposal for tax or other purposes.
Establishing the 'Market Value'
Most capital values are based on Market Value which the RICS define as; "the estimated amount for which an asset or liability should exchange on the valuation date between a willing buyer and a willing seller in an arm's length transaction, after proper marketing and where the parties had each acted knowledgeably, prudently and without compulsion.
There are many reason for requiring a capital valuation and many factors can affect the assessment of that Market Value. The valuation surveyors at Ringley have extensive experience in dealing with valuations for both freeholders and leaseholders within the residential and commercial sectors.
Other methods of establishing the market value include the account method (For business valuations), the residual method (For Land & Development Valuations) and the depreciated replacement cost method (where there is a very limited market).
Market value is a concept distinct from market price, which is “the price at which one can transact”, while market value is “the true underlying value” according to theoretical standards. The concept is most commonly invoked in inefficient markets or disequilibrium situations where prevailing market prices are not reflective of true underlying market value. For market price to equal market value, the market must be informationally efficient and rational expectations must prevail.
Market value is also distinct from fair value in that fair value depends on the parties involved, while market value does not, the implications being that fair value requires the assessment of the price that is fair between two specific parties taking into account the respective advantages or disadvantages that each will gain from the transaction.
Valuations for re-mortgage
Most rental valuations are based on Market Rent which is defined by the RICS as "the estimated amount for which an interest in real property should be leased on the valuation date between a willing lessor and willing lessee on appropriate terms in an arm's length transaction, after proper marketing and where the parties had each acted knowledgeably, prudently and without compulsion
There are many reason for requiring a rental valuation and many factors can affect the assessment of that Market Rent. The valuation surveyors at Ringley have extensive experience in dealing with rental valuations for both freeholders and leaseholders within the residential and commercial sectors.
Independence of the Valuer
Under the RICS* International Valuation Standards the Valuer, a qualified Chartered Valuation Surveyor, has to be independent of the parties and cannot carry out the valuation if he/she has a conflict of interest, i.e., he/she cannot act for both parties in a transaction.
