What is a Market Valuation Report?
A concise report describing the property and providing a current Market Valuation based on recent sales of other similar properties in the area. When necessary, it can also include a valuation as at date in the past.
When Do You Need a Market Valuation Report?
Here are a few examples:
Taxation estimating a possible liability for Capital Gains Tax, Inheritance Tax or other taxes based on the value of the property.
Divorce establishing a financial settlement with a spouse or partner.
Executry the value of property owned by the deceased may be needed for Confirmation of the Estate or Inheritance Tax.
Purchase a valuation may help you decide on a purchase, although if you want advice on condition, you should obtain a survey instead.
Private Sale a valuation may help when considering an off-market sale. Note that a marketed sale normally needs a Home Report instead.
Financial Planning a catch-all term for lots of other circumstances.
When seeking a loan, your mortgage lender might obtain a Market Valuation. This is a report that tells them the value and suitability of the property for loan purposes. In most cases the lender will arrange this themselves.
How Detailed is the Report?
It’s important to note this is a limited inspection – not a survey. Only visible defects that have a material effect on the value will be reported. A Market Valuation Report won’t give you detailed information on the condition of the property.
What our clients say
"Seamless experience! Charlie the Surveyor came to do the Home Report for our House sale! Asked us a few questions about our house then carried out his survey of the house which a draft was emailed to us within 48 hours! A few adjustments were necessary then it was full steam ahead!"
