Red Book Valuations

We are an independent RICS Regulated practice, with RICS Registered Valuers undertaking Valuation Reports on behalf of our clients, that are carried out in accordance with the current RICS Practice Statements, Guidance Notes and Standards. These are generally known as Red Book Valuations.

These red book valuation reports provide all the necessary detail to enable the reader to understand the macro-economic circumstances in which the report has been compiled, whilst also detailing the property(ies), its size, photographs, factors considered in assessing the value and the location (including an Ordnance Survey based Land Registry plan). There will be relevant appendices incorporated.

Any assumptions that have been made will be explained, along with a comprehensive overview of comparable evidence, highlighting similar properties currently being marketed and recently sold / let within the area, to support the freehold or leasehold interest values provided.
