Whether you are buying, selling or need to know the current value of your property for legal reasons, you will need a property valuation surveyor.

A valuer will review the current property market. They will also consider a range of factors such as the location, size and condition of the property. This enables them to provide an accurate home valuation. Mortgage lenders will insist on a valuation before approving a loan for a buyer. Sellers use RICS-registered valuers to help them price their homes.

A property valuation surveyor can be used for a professional valuation for Help to Buy, Shared Ownership or legal reasons.

Below we look at some of our top surveyors who offer valuations among their services. We also look at what a valuer looks for and how much a valuation report costs.

How Are Properties Valued?

A Valuation Report is a basic inspection that will determine the estimated value of a home. It involves a short visit to the home, in addition to market research.

Properties are valued based on a few factors which include:

  • Type of property (including size and age)
  • How it was built and the materials it is made from
  • Number of bedrooms
  • The Property's location and local government zoning
  • Local market analysis - reviewing sold prices for surrounding properties
  • Condition of the home
  • Leasehold or freehold
  • Planning permissions
  • Additional property features such as improvements and extensions

Can a Surveyor Value a Property?

Surveying firms often offer valuations as part of their services. A chartered surveyor can provide a valuation of a home.

Surveyors can provide valuations for a range of reasons. This includes mortgage valuations for lenders. They can also be hired by sellers looking for the market value of their homes.

Is it Worth Getting a Valuation from a Surveyor?

According to RICS; “Whether you are buying, selling or even gifting a house or flat, an accurate assessment of its market value can provide important insights.”

When buying a home, your mortgage lender will arrange a property valuation. This is to ensure their investment is secure. They need to be sure that the home is worth the amount they are offering you as a loan.
The lender will often organise the valuation, but the buyer is often responsible for the cost.

If you are selling a property, a valuation can help you set a guide price for the home. This can ensure you set a correct price and don’t undervalue or overprice your home. Undervaluing could mean losing out financially, but an overpriced home could stay unsold on the market.

Valuations are also necessary for remortgaging and many legal reasons. This includes during divorce proceedings, probate or for Help to Buy or Shared Ownership purposes.

How Much Should a Property Valuation Cost?

On average, a Valuation Report costs around £320 in the UK, based on the average house price of £277,000.

A valuation cannot be a substitute for a survey. This is why the cost of a valuation is lower than that of a Level 1, 2 or 3 survey. The cost of your property valuation will depend on the type of property and location.

Other factors, such as the valuer or surveying firm you opt for will be a factor in the cost.

Estate Agent Valuations

Be aware that a Valuation Report is not the same as a valuation provided by an estate agent. When selling your home, estate agents should provide a free valuation of the home. This, however, will not have the same clout as a valuation from an RICS surveyor.

Can You Challenge a Valuation?

If a surveyor devalues the home you are looking to buy, some lenders may allow you to appeal the valuation. You will need to provide evidence to back up your appeal, such as sold prices for similar properties in the area.
