Mortgage valuations

In order to lend on a property, we require a valuation to be carried out.  We use a panel of valuers. The standard fee for a residential valuation is £1 for every £1,000 of the property value plus VAT. This is subject to a minimum fee of £275 plus VAT. For example, a property worth £500,000 would be subject to a valuation fee of £500 plus VAT. However, these rates are negotiable for higher value properties.

Commercial and development lending valuations are charged at local rates. Quotes will be obtained on request. Project Monitoring Surveyor fees will be applicable for refurbishments and developments and are quoted on a project by project basis.
