Howkins & Harrison are chartered surveyors and registered valuers with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
Whatever type of valuation you require, we will carry it out in accordance with the RICS Appraisal and Valuation Standards Manual (commonly known as “The Red Book”).
We regularly conduct valuations for the following purposes:
• Probate/Inheritance Tax
• Capital Gains Tax
• Matrimonial (Jointly or Independently Appointed)
• Market Value for Charities or Trusts
• Mortgage and Loan Security
• Insurance/Reinstatement Valuations
As our reports are compliant with the Red Book, you can rely on them for any required purpose including submission to the capital taxes office as well as assisting in calculating things such as capital gains tax payable, or agricultural property and business property relief when considering Inheritance Tax. We also conduct negotiations with the district valuer, should this be required.
If you are buying a property or borrowing money, we will carry out a valuation in order to confirm the purchase price of a property is sound. We are panel valuers for a number of institutions such as AMC, Barclays, Natwest, Handlesbanken and many others.
Matrimonial valuations can be jointly or independently appointed by you or a solicitor. We will provide a valuation in accordance with your instructions that can be relied on individually or by both parties as well as by the courts.
We can provide valuations formally, in a Red Book format, or on an informal basis to tell you what your property is worth prior to placing it on the market with our Rural Sales
or Residential Sales Team
