Valuation

We provide our clients with independent valuation advice for the purposes of loan security, financial accounting and asset management. The firm has 12 Registered Valuers under the RICS accreditation scheme 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.

The professional team is lead by Mark Hanson who has 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.

Hanson Chartered Surveyors is part of the Walker Singleton group of companies and 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.
