Property Valuations

Are you paying too much? Regulated by the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors), Donald Leslie & Co. can give you an independent opinion on the value of your property, or a property that you're considering buying. We work for individuals, not lenders and you can be assured of a professional, local, unbiased opinion.

There are many circumstances in which you might need a RICS Valuation report such as:
  • Property purchasing
  • Help to buy purchasing, selling or stair casing
  • Probate
  • Divorce
  • Capital Gains Tax
  • Inheritance Tax

Market valuations

Your mortgage lender will require a valuation for lending purposes. The main factors affecting the valuation include property condition, value of similar recently sold properties in your area and the general state of the housing market. You can obtain a property valuation quickly through Donald Leslie & Co. This independent valuation will also give you the reassurance of the current market value to ensure that you don't pay over the odds. 

We are available for valuations in and around London.

Independent Valuations For Shared Ownership and Shared Equity Properties

If you are the homeowner of a property that is part owned by a Housing Association or Government Body, or if you have an equity-share loan as part of a home buying scheme, you may not be aware that an independent valuation is normally required before you sell the property. RICS registered valuers Donald Leslie & Co can offer you a fast and professional independent property valuation.

Leaving this until late in the process can limit your options making it more difficult to find a chartered surveyor that takes your best interests into account and who is prepared to talk to you about your individual situation. Housing Associations may have a pre-approved list of surveyors for property valuations, which may not be the ideal provider for you and this could lead to unexpected additional fees or charges.

With our independent and fast service you can be ready to finalise your sale in good time. These valuations are available for homeowners part of home buying schemes such as Shared Ownership, Help to Buy, First Time Buyers as well as Key Worker Schemes and Shared Equity Loans.

We also offer the same service to those of you who are looking to buy a larger percentage of your home (Staircasing).

George asked us to carry out a probate valuation on his mothers house in Chalfont St Peter.
"A really professional and friendly firm. Donald did a valuation on a house I was selling. The arrangements were made speedily and charmingly. Found him extremely knowledgeable and liked how he was able to suggest the best way to deal with a couple of things that needed attention. Plus he was able to say why something I thought was a worry wasn't at all. I received the report very quickly - it was extensive and detailed but very easy to read. Excellent and would highly recommend."
