Rural property is, by its nature, unique. No two properties are the same and their valuation requires experience with the ability to assess the property’s component parts; its strengths and weaknesses, and consider any constraints, whether natural, physical or legal, that may affect the property. Our valuation team have many years experience in valuing rural property in North and West Yorkshire and East Lancashire.

A Professional Approach

Professionally prepared valuations are required for many different purposes, from sales and marketing advice through to division within the family and financial planning. We are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and can carry out professional valuations in accordance with the ‘Red Book’. Both Matthew Binns and James Allen are 'RICS Registered Valuers'. The RICS Valuers Registration Scheme was put in place for valuers who are active in their field and regularly undertake 'Red Book Valuations'. Instructing a RICS Registered Valuer gives a safeguard that they will be knowledgeable, experienced, professional and display the highest level of competence and integrity, ensuring that clients receive the highest level of service. We regularly work with accountants, lawyers and other professional advisors in tax planning to ensure that your individual needs are met. 

Unfortunately, an increased number of divorces require a valuation of the family home or property. Our valuers are experienced in providing valuations for the Court in these circumstances.

The Value of Planning

Planning potential is often something that needs to be taken into account and factored into the valuation accordingly. Our valuers are experienced in assessing planning potential and have the added advantage of being able to call upon our planning team when considering planning policies and other planning related matters.
