Richard Stacey provided excellent impartial advice for renovation and remodelling work on our home. Richard has saved... us significant building costs and has led to our living space being far more practical and future-proof than it would have been, had we continued with our original plans. His professionalism and knowledge is matched by his people skills and he instantly made us feel at ease. I would definitely recommend him, you wont be disappointed.read more

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 red book valuation reports



What is a ‘Red Book’ Valuation and how and when should one be used? 

A ‘Red Book’ Valuation should be used by any RICS Regulated firm when valuing a property. Not all types of Valuation reporting is required to be Red Book compliant but even when not, we try to comply with the Red Book where we see that in doing so, we are following best practice. 

A ‘Red Book’ Valuation follows a strict set of mandatory rules and guidelines and guidelines that are set out by the RICS. It does not tell the Surveyor how to value your property but sets out standards that should be followed. It ensures that a valuation report is of a minimum quality. 

At Websters Surveyors all of our valuation reports follow the mandatory rules and guidelines set out by the RICS whether the particular report needs to be ‘Red Book’ compliant or not. This way we can guarantee professionalism and accuracy in all of our reports. 




court reports


The Courts often require expert evidence from an Independent Chartered Surveyor & RICS Registered Valuer to determine the Market Value of a Property on a given date, often a retrospective valuation exercise. 

Examples of this may be where Family Law Solicitors are putting cases forward for division of assets within a failed marriage or where there are accusations of professional negligence in valuation, defective building works or boundary disputes. 

From time to time our Surveyors have been required to attend Court, a Tribunal or a Public Inquiry to provide expert witness valuation reports and advice. 

For example, a number of leasehold reform (lease extension and enfranchisement) matters reach the First Tier Tribunal of the Lands Chamber or Compulsory Purchase matters reach the Upper Tribunal. 

More commonly are where we are appointed as Single Joint expert by the parties, either voluntarily or through Court direction to value assets. 

Where we are appointed to provide Court compliant reports, including for litigation support, we follow Part 35 of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) 1998 and on the RICS requirements for Acting and an Expert Witness.

Our reports are impartial and rely solely on the relevant available evidence, disregarding any undue pressures from any of the parties involved. Our reports are Independent with our duty of care being to the judicial process irrespective of who has appointed us or paying for our service.

As an RICS regulated firm we have to abide to the following 5 fundamental ethics that are part of the RICS ethos: 

1) Act with integrity 

2) Always provide a high standard of service 

3) Act in a way that promotes trust in the profession

4) Treat other with respect

5) Take responsibility 

Most of these are fundamental to our business and would be incorporated into our own ethos whether part of the RICS or not. However, being a regulated firm, we can be held accountable if we are unable to comply with the above. 

It is of course our aim to not only comply with the above but to provide a full professional service on every matter and ensure that all parties are happy with the eventual outcome.
