Valuations are not necessarily formal. Formal valuations are regulated by the RICS and the RICS Professional Standards – the Red Book – and are required for a number of purposes. As an RICS Registered Valuer, John can undertake these valuations in many instances or can advise on and help select sector or regional specialists. Informal valuations are often required as part of the evolving property strategy, the matrix of “what-ifs” that precede a decision. Often required in a confidential context, John’s experience and discretion can inform the discussion and aid the conclusion.
