RICS Registered property valuers and expert witnesses

Property valuation services

Any person or organisation that occupies, owns, develops or trades property relies on a valuer’s expertise, quality standards and ethics in the provision of valuation services.

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors provide property valuation services to the highest industry standards as RICS Registered Valuers.

Our services include RICS ‘Red Book’ valuation reports, and we are also RICS Registered Expert Witnesses and Members of the Expert Witness Institute for property valuation.

RICS ‘Red Book’ valuation reports

As a result of our experience across multiple sectors of the property market, Renshaw Chartered Surveyors can offer valuation services on residential, retail, office and industrial property, which can offer time and cost savings to clients that own more than one type of property.

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors act for private individuals, pension funds, trading and investment companies, landlords and tenants and charities or on instruction from other professionals, such as accountants, financial advisors, solicitors and litigators.

Our RICS ‘Red Book’ valuation reports are undertaken by RICS Registered Valuers for a variety of purposes.

Expert witness valuation

The designation of an RICS Registered Expert Witness means that we have undertaken extensive training in conducting the instruction and reporting in accordance with court standards and protocols, which includes training on examination in court. As Members of the EWI we have undergone independent referencing and report sampling to receive membership.

We are best placed therefore to report on properties that are subject to, or may become subject to, legal action as a result of our specific training and experience in acting as an advocate, expert witness or single joint expert.

Pension funds and SIPP’s

If you own or manage a self-invested personal pension, you will need independent advice on the value of the property and the suitability of the terms of occupation – the lease terms.

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors have extensive experience in providing RICS Red Book valuation reports on the value of pension fund held assets and the suitability of their occupational terms; a service enhanced by our experience as property managers and agents.

Company asset valuation

If you own a property, or a portfolio, either as an investment or trading company, you will need independent advice on the value of the property held.

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors are experienced providers of RICS Red Book valuation reports and assist business owners and investors with the valuation, management and development of their property assets.

Inheritance planning

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors recognise that this is a very difficult time, whether you are dealing with the passing of a family member or acting as an Executor. We use our experience and professionalism to help reduce the stress of this process for you, whether we are instructed directly by you as an individual, Executor or via your advisor, to provide RICS Red Book valuation reports.

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors also provide RICS Red Book valuation reports to assist will writing specialists help you plan for your estate.

Valuation for taxation

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors carry out valuations for Capital Gains Tax, Inheritance Tax and Stamp Duty Land Tax purposes, in accordance with the basis of valuation specified by governing legislation. You can instruct us directly or via your accountant or legal advisor.

Charity Act valuations

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors have considerable experience in providing strategic advice on the development, disposal or acquisition of property for charities.

We are able to provide preliminary advice for consultation, prior to issuing a report in compliance with The Charities (Qualified Surveyors Reports) Regulations (1992), an approach that will help you develop the right solution with confidence.

Our clients have included the Methodist Church, Church of England and Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation (CISWO).

Help to buy valuations

This government scheme was introduced to help people to get a foot on the property market. It is a shared equity scheme that allows first-time buyers to borrow up to 20% of the cost of a new build house.

You will need an RICS Red Book valuation if you are buying, selling, remortgaging or repaying your Help to Buy loan. We can help if you require a valuation.

Purchase and disposal valuations

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors provide valuation reports to purchasers of residential, retail, industrial and commercial property, for owner-occupation or investment purposes.

As experienced property consultants we assist owners, occupiers and investors improve the value of their assets over time, a service that includes owner-occupied property, investments with rental income streams, or land or property for development.

Our valuation service includes the assessment of market value and market rent; whether as part of a retention or sale strategy.

Landlord and tenant valuations

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors are a multi-disciplinary practice well placed to advise you on valuation issues arising from tenanted property – dilapidations, rent review or lease renewal.

As experienced property consultants, Renshaw Chartered Surveyors can report on the value of an asset; the loss in value due to dilapidations; the market rent appropriate for rent review; or the terms appropriate for lease renewal.

We can provide a single report and / or negotiate an outcome for you.

Insurance reinstatement assessments

This is not a valuation; it is an assessment of the reinstatement cost of your property for inclusion in your building insurance policy. We can provide this assessment as a stand-alone service or as an additional service to the RICS Red Book valuation.

Renshaw Chartered Surveyors use RICS Building Cost Information Service (BCIS) to advise on an appropriate insurance reinstatement figure for your building insurance policy.

BCIS defines an insurance reinstatement figure as ‘the costs of demolishing and clearing away the existing structure and rebuilding it to its existing design, in modern materials, using modern techniques, to a standard equal to the existing property and in accordance with current Building Regulations and other statutory requirements’.
