There are numerous circumstances in which clients will require a valuation report undertaken and written by an RICS Registered Valuer including tax planning, probate, matrimonial or to be used in court proceedings. As a general rule, the majority of valuations will fall under the RICS Valuation Standards Manual (known as ‘The Red Book’) and will have to meet the governing body’s strict criteria.
Consistency, objectivity and transparency are fundamental to building and maintaining public confidence and trust in valuation work. In order to achieve this the valuer but possess appropriate skills, knowledge and understanding of the respective field and work and conduct themselves in a highly ethical manner. Clients must clearly understand the exact nature of the instruction and what to expect from their surveyor who’s report must be clear and easy to understand whist conforming to recognised practices.
