RECENT INSTRUCTIONS


VALUATIONS
Portfolio Inheritance Tax Valuation, Wembley, HA9 & HA3

We were instructed to undertake 3 market valuations for inheritance tax purposes. The properties were located in Wembley and Preston Road. A mixed portfolio including a short lease flat meant that the client needed specialist valuation advice. Our chartered surveyor and valuer was able to inspect the properties and give their professional opinion as to their market values.

Lease Extension Valuation, Harlesden, London, NW10 

We were put in contact with a Freeholder who had received an informal request for a lease extension from a leaseholder. Our instructions were to insect the property and carry out a lease extension valuation and advise the client on how much they could ask for a lease extension.

Valuation for Insurance, Tottenham, N15

Websters Surveyors were instructed by a legal firm to undertake a valuation for their client, an Insurance firm. The valuation required our chartered surveyor to value a plot of land which contained an easement, or right of way. The land had to be valued on the basis of its current set up, and on the basis that the easement did not exist and had some development potential. 

SURVEYS
RICS Homebuyer Survey Report, Hendon, London, NW4

A homebuyer survey was chosen by our client, as the property was a ground  floor flat, in a former 1930’s semi detached house heavily extended and converted to provide six units. A number of issues were discovered, including dampness and poorly maintained communal areas and grounds. We also had concerns regarding the agreed purchase price, and advised the client that it was considered to be  excessive.

RICS Condition Report in Edgware, London, HA8

The property was a modern purpose built ground floor flat in a four storey block. The property was in need of upgrading of many of the services installations, and there were some communal maintenance liabilities that we advised clarifying. The client was able to proceed knowing that there were no significant defects or issues with the property.

RICS Building Survey Report, Barnet, London, EN5

Unusually for a Building Survey, this was a former Congregational Meeting Hall . A Building Survey was chosen because it was an early Victorian property, with implications for alterations and maintenance. 

Originally  constructed as a chapel, the property has a rear former industrial building, together with a  central infill. The property had been formerly converted to provide multiple unit residential  accommodation, but is currently  occupied as a single family home. A number of significant defects and maintenance issues were detected, including rotted external doors and windows, roof coverings, and dampness and spalling to many areas of solid brick masonry.

I contacted Webster’s surveyors regarding a property and from the first phone call to the last I found this company... efficient, polite and professional. They are very reasonably priced, they attended the property quickly and the report was also with me quickly. The report was thorough and very easy to understand, and has helped me greatly with the issues found, which will determine if I proceed or not, potentially saving me thousands of pounds.Cannot recommend enough.read more

rics home surveys



Buying a property to call your home or an investment is one of the most expensive purchases of your life so why risk it by not having a survey for a fraction of the price?

Both the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Law Society recommend nearly all property purchases should include a Survey.

According to a survey conducted by RICS, buyers who did not get a Survey faced, on average, £5750 in repair costs.

A mortgage valuation is strictly for the lenders benefit which means that the Surveyor has a duty of care to the bank and not you. Many Mortgage Valuers are instructed to carry out a cursory inspection of the property, if they even see it at all, and possibly to not even provide you with their report. Their report is primarily to satisfy the mortgage lender that the amount they are lending you is protected. Our reports have a duty of care purely to whoever is instructing us.

If a Survey indicates that there are hidden defects that require expensive repairs, you could potentially bring this to the sellers attention to reduce the asking price or require them to undertake the works before you buy




VALUATION SERVICES


We pride ourselves on providing a range of RICS compliant Red Book Valuations.

The RICS Red Book is a combination of two documents –

1)         The RICS Valuation – Global Standards

2)         The UK specific complimentary edition which is known as the RICS Valuation – Professional Statements. This document ensures compliance with UK specific regulations and practice

So why should you be bothered?

Well, put simply compliance with the Red Book ensures the gold standard of reporting. It provides for detailed minimum standards (which we try to exceed) giving our clients the reassurance that their report is not only to a good degree of detail but also meets any regulatory requirements, such as those laid down by HMRC for Statutory Valuations such as for Capital Gains Tax or Inheritance Tax assessments.
