Valuation Overview

We have the largest international team of Chartered Surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers dedicated to our specialist markets: hotels, care, childcare, leisure, medical and retail.

What are Valuations?

The essential characteristic of this type of property is that it has been designed or adapted for a specific use, and the value of the property interest is intrinsically linked to the returns that an owner can generate from that use. The value therefore reflects the trading potential of the property. It can be contrasted with generic property that can be occupied by a range of different business types, such as standard office, industrial or retail property.

The specialist sectors that we cover include : Care, Childcare & Education, Dental Practices, Hospitals, GP Surgeries, Hotels, Leisure, Pharmacies, Pubs, Restaurants and Retail.

Our Valuation Activity

Each year our team completes valuations of thousands of properties across the UK and Europe. Working closely with our transactional colleagues, who sell over 1,000 businesses each year, we are able to draw on current market sentiment and comparable evidence.
On average, our team value or advise on over £10bn of property every year, making us one of the most active valuers in our markets.  This is across the whole spectrum from single properties through to inspecting portfolios in excess of 2,000 properties.

How Can We Help?

With access to comprehensive market data, our valuers are in a unique position to benchmark both the business performance and property value ensuring their reports and professional advice is always well researched and well informed.  

We are recognised as leading valuers by high street banks including Bank of Scotland, Clydesdale, HSBC, Lloyds, NatWest, RBS, Santander, Handelsbanken and Yorkshire Bank as well as most of the other specialist lending institutions.  In addition, we work with many of the large European banks and a number of North American and global financial institutions.  
Much of the work we undertake is for loan security, accounts and balance sheet, acquisition, disposal, dispute resolution, statutory compensation and taxation purposes.

With valuers located in each of our offices across the UK, Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Poland, Spain and Sweden, we can provide local knowledge on an international scale, and respond effectively to widespread portfolio valuations as well as individual local projects.
