A market valuation gives a professional opinion of the value of an asset at a specific date in relation to the current market. The valuer will take into consideration property attributes such as size, specification and location along with market trends to form an opinion of value.

Although a desktop or drive-by valuation can be undertaken in some cases, a valuation usually requires a visit to the subject property where the valuer can obtain the appropriate information. Inspections for valuation purposes usually last between 20 and 40 minutes and will require access internally.

You may require a valuation for a different date from the current market value, or need two valuations for different dates. For example:

  • For Inheritance Tax or Probate, you will normally need the date of decease
