Residential Valuation

Ingram Evans can provide bespoke residential valuation reports on dwellings for a range of purposes including the following:

Inheritance Tax Valuations

Professional valuations of properties are often required in calculating the probate value of an estate for inheritance tax purposes. An estate agents opinion should not be relied upon for such an important and official purpose; a valuation from a Chartered Surveyor should be sought.

Matrimonial Valuations

An expert report prepared by a RICS Chartered Surveyor is often required in assessing the value of the family home in divorce proceedings. Ingram Evans fully understands the duties of an expert in these sensitive cases and can provide a full service from provision of the initial report to appearance in court proceedings if required.

Loan Security Valuations

Banks, Building Societies and other lending institutions commonly extend loans (i.e mortgages) on residential properties and therefore require valuations to ensure that the property offers suitable security. Ingram Evans provides such valuations to most of the High Street banks and building societies as well as more bespoke lenders. Each lender will have their own specific reporting requirements but please contact our office to speak to a Chartered Surveyor if you would like to discuss the process.

Bespoke Valuations

There may be times when you will require a valuation for a very specific reason. This may be in connection with future tax planning, property investment advice, a property dispute or a host of other reasons. Ingram Evans has a team of highly experienced Chartered Surveyors who will be able to advise and assist you with whatever requirements you may have.

Frequently Asked Questions

The ‘market value’ of your home can be determined by getting a property valuation. In a nutshell, the market value is how much a buyer would be ready to pay if they were not under any compulsion to buy and could pay the current market rate.

A survey is a detailed and thorough assessment of the condition of your property that highlights defects, costs of repairs, and offers advice. A property valuation determines the value of a property for the benefit of your mortgage provider to ensure their investment is worth it before they approve your mortgage.

The size of the building, its condition, its fittings, its age, its fixtures, its layout, and its design will all be examined by the valuer. The ease of vehicle access, garages, and outbuildings are all taken into account, and photos of the property are taken to highlight key aspects.
