Chartered Surveyors

Philip Martin can provide a wide range of advice and services such as professional valuations for probate, insurance, taxation, divorce and litigation, as well as general advice on planning, development potential and legal matters. We are not, however, building surveryors and are unable to carry out structural surveys etc.

A formal probate valuation is carried out by one of our chartered surveyors (RICS) and is commonly required for probate. A formal valuation can only be conducted by a Chartered Surveyor who is also a Registered Valuer to ensure that they take into account all features and issues relating to a particular property. After a valuation, the client receives a written report detailing the value of the property and a fee is charged for this service. Valuations are required when a definitive value is needed. Reasons for this include a property settlement, obtaining finance from a lending institution or establishing the value of a deceased estate. A Court may also order that a valuation be obtained as part of the process of resolving a dispute. Request an RICS valuation here.
