London Property Valuations for Tax Purposes

You or your client may need a property valuation for a number of reasons; IHT, ATED and Capital Gains Tax. Many valuations are calculated at the point of sale or purchase, but property valuations for tax are calculated at the time of reporting. Property valuations should always be carried out by a RICS chartered surveyor.

As RICS Registered Valuation Surveyors, our expert team assess the value of any residential property in London on site. All our valuations adhere to the Red Book standard, which is the professional standard set out by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). We do not conduct desktop valuations as these do not adhere to RICS Red Book standard.

Our Residential Property Valuations can be carried out across London. Our completely independent and impartial team of qualified surveyors will assess your property before sending you a valuation report.

Why do I need a Property Valuation?

A property valuation is needed to provide reliable information on the worth of the property and is especially useful to avoid situations where an individual or entity is charged much higher or lower taxes than they should be liable for. The market value of the property is a crucial component when calculating the capital gains tax on a property.

Will I be Required to Provide the Property Valuation myself?

HMRC require you to arrange for the valuation of the property. They strongly recommend that you use a professional surveyor because they’ll make sure the valuation is as accurate as possible.
