Valuation

We provide our clients with independent valuation advice for the purposes of loan security, financial accounting and asset management. The firm has three Registered Valuers under the RICS accreditation scheme being; Mark Hanson, Jason Metcalfe and Abigail Hanson Hughes, each with detailed local market knowledge.

There are many reasons why a client would require valuation advice on commercial and industrial property. At Hanson Chartered Surveyors we undertake a wide range of valuation and appraisal work on behalf of our clients.

Clients include major banks, pension funds, and family owner managed businesses with property assets, trusts and charities.

Instructions are accepted for a variety of reasons, including; bank lending/loan security, financial accounting, acquisition and lease renewal purposes, taxation and dispute resolution.

There are three chartered surveyors with RICS accredited valuation scheme compliance, being:

Mark Hanson

  • With nearly 40 years experience undertaking valuation work on residential development sites, industrial and commercial property, primarily in Yorkshire and Lancashire regions. Mark previously worked at partner level with a large regional practice prior to founding Hanson Chartered Surveyors in 1989.

Jason Metcalfe

  • In excess of 20 years experience undertaking valuation work on a wide range of property, including public houses and hotels whilst at a national hotel and leisure practice. More recently having worked in the Yorkshire area at a large regional practice, Jason moved to Hanson Chartered Surveyors in 2007, and has concentrated on providing valuation and development appraisals in the Kirklees and Calderdale areas, where he has expert local knowledge.

Abigail Hanson Hughes

  • After obtaining a Masters in Real Estate, Abigail joined the practice and qualified as a chartered surveyor and Registered RICS valuer in 2014. She continues to gain expert local knowledge in the Kirklees and Calderdale areas.

Hanson Chartered Surveyors is RICS compliant with all directors and professional staff having appropriate qualifications and local knowledge. The firm holds professional indemnity insurance with a reputable insurer to cover all valuation instructions.

Whatever the purpose of the valuation our valuation reports are detailed, clear, and transparent, dedicated to the individual client’s needs. Our valuations contain our advice through detailed research and an understanding of local market knowledge. Where required or relevant, we include alternative options and a consideration of potential for higher use values.

Our valuations also amplify our advice with critical commentary and where appropriate we include sensitivity analyses, based on valuation assumptions.

We can report on the following bases:

  • Market Value with vacant possession
  • Market Value subject to occupational leases
  • Market Rent assuming lease terms
  • Existing Use Value

In addition, we regularly provide clients with an insurance assessment for the full reinstatement cost of the property on a day one basis. It is important to remember an insurance assessment is not a valuation of any kind.

Hanson Chartered Surveyors provide comprehensive and accurate assessments of commercial property values for banking, accounts, insurance and other purposes within the mandatory requirements of the RICS Appraisals and Valuation Manual, known as the Red Book. The RICS establishes regulations of the highest standards of competence and integrity among its Chartered members in relation to providing advice on property. All RICS members must comply with the regulations.
