Market Valuation
This is the briefest report, a valuation not a survey. It gives no significant detail on condition, but simply advises on Market Value. It is not recommend for private house purchasers if no other condition report is prepared.
It is suitable for probate, matrimonial, tax, lending security purposes, etc.
The Valuation is prepared in accordance with Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Appraisal and Valuation Standards and a Fire Insurance Reinstatement Cost is given.
