Banks, mortgage brokers, lenders, accountants and solicitors count on trustworthy and accurate property valuations both to protect their own interests and to offer the best service to their clients. Lamar Chartered Surveyors is relied upon by investors and property professionals across London, the Home Counties and further afield for our experience, knowledge, accuracy, and high standard of service. We ensure prompt and professional communication with the client at all stages of the process, offering expert advice and consultancy whenever required.
Our property valuations look at data from the widest possible variety of sources including online property websites, property sale data sites, and local high street estate agents. More than that, we bring our extensive experience as surveyors with an unparalleled knowledge of the London property market including Prime Central London property. We are familiar with an enormous range of property types as well as valuing portfolios, so can cater for almost any requirements.
In addition to this research and experience, we carry out a thorough inspection of the property with regard to its location, local services and amenities, comparable properties, and the general condition of the property. We will also consider factors that may affect the valuation negatively such as undesirable architectural features, damage or landscape issues, and proximity to noisy businesses and infrastructure.The valuation is not a survey, however, and only assesses the condition of the property as much as can be done from a visual inspection and insofar as it affects the valuation. It is not suitable for assessing what work may be required on the property after purchase, or gathering recommendations as to repairs of maintenance.
Our valuation team in London is able to draw on a fantastic level of local knowledge from our network of local chartered valuation surveyors. This collective knowledge and experience ensures accurate valuations which provide comfort and reassurance, be it for Sales Preparation, Matrimonial Proceedings or Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPS) or Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED).
