  1. If you’re buying or selling a property, it’s essential to have a valuation so that you understand its market value

  4. A valuation can help you determine the value of a sites or buildings held at the date of reporting to help you accurately submit your annual company accounts.
  5. If the owner wants to liquidate the business or merge with another company then a valuation is required

  7. Valuations are required for a number of taxation purpose including Capital Gains, inheritance, corporation or income tax 
  8. Should the owner of the property die, the executors may require a valuation before making a decision on behalf of the estate
  9. Your pension scheme can purchase property from you, a person connected with you or any other party. However, the necessary valuation and survey needs to be undertaken by an independent RICS Registered Valuer
