Our Registered Valuer
Our surveyor has been operating as a professional building surveyor, and has enjoyed a career spanning from property insurance to MOD properties, from commercial assets to the residential sector in which he now operates.
His extensive experience is reinforced by his qualifications – both academic and vocational. He has professional membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
As such, he is one of Penzance’s foremost senior property professionals and amongst the most reliable valuers of residential property in the wider Cornwall county.
How do we provide our valuations?
Like many professional services, the art of valuation gets easier with time and experience. Whilst all valuation includes a mathematical element, property valuation also incorporates an ‘art’ which relies on the judgement of the surveyor to adjust the evidence available to suit the subject property.
We take great pride in our ability to combine the mathematical and art aspects of valuation and all of our valuation reports are provided directly by Neil, an experienced residential valuer with years of property knowledge to draw on.
Further, we believe that a valuation instruction shouldn’t just end with the report – we become our client’s value consultant and are available to discuss complicated aspects like synergistic value, investment yield and development potential.
Probate and Matrimonial Valuations
We don’t just provide valuations for property buyers and sellers. There are also two particular legal processes where our valuation expert can be of assistance:
Probate estate valuations – An essential part of assessing whether inheritance tax is payable after the death of the owner. For the probate proceedings to go ahead, the value of all the estate’s assets – including the property - need to be established. Thereafter the grant of representation can be made.
For probate proceedings, a property valuer who can work efficiently, accurately and reliably is absolutely essential. Neil is an expert in probate valuation proceedings across Penzance and provides a sensitive service in such a difficult time.
Matrimonial valuations – These are required when a marriage comes to its end and valuations are required in order to accurately divide the assets between the parties. In such cases, it is essential to instruct a registered valuer to calculate the market value of all properties owned by the pair, including portfolio properties, as not doing so can leave you at a significant disadvantage in the settlement negotiations.
As with the probate valuation process, he is an expert at handling matrimonial valuation instructions in Penzance sensitively and diplomatically, especially when acting as a joint valuer for both parties.
