Why carry out Commercial Property Valuation.

Valuation is a vital part of business property transactions and ownership and is needed in business in many ways to speed up processes and avoid confusion.

Keep Up-To-Date with the valuation of your commercial property

As a business changes directors or shareholders, a will need a full up-to-date valuation will save time and money. For the commercial land and buildings to be valued at the current market value you will need an experienced external valuer regulated by RICS.

Not having an up-to-date valuation at hand can cores delays and frustrations when negotiation or agreements need to be made.

Securing Loans

As with all business they outgrow and expand and securing a loan means requiring more money than you have. To secure a loan from a Bank, they almost certainly will first secure a loan against your business premises and will get a valuation from a registered RICS valuer. Having a valuation report in-advance of speaking to your bank manager should help speed up the process of borrowing funds.

Commercial Property Valuation of  freehold premises in the event of ‘End of lease repairs’

When your lease of your freehold commercial premises comes to an end your landlord may make a claim for dilapidations (repairs required during or at the end of a tenancy or lease), depending on the repairing liabilities of your lease. The laws can be found in Section 18 (1) of the Landlord and Tenant’s Act 1927 and ensures that the cost of repairs can’t be more than how much the property value has been reduced by. Having a commercial property valuation report will confirm that there has been a loss or not. For more information on Government Landlord and Tenant’s Act click here.
