Professional Services

Charities Act Valuations

Over the past few years we have acted for many local charities offering advice in property matters. In particular, we have carried out numerous valuations to comply with Section 119 (previously S36) of the 2011 Charities Act; (The Charities Act 2011 came into force on 14 March 2012 and replaces the 1993 Act and most of the 2006 Act.) required where the charity is to sell property or where it has been appropriated.

The services we can provide to charities include:

  • Valuations, complying with Section 119 of the 2011 Charities Act.
  • Acquisition & Disposition
  • Sales of all types of property, including commercial and residential.
  • Preparation of surveys.
  • Preparation of Schedules of Condition.
  • Asbestos Reports

In recent years, we have assisted Executors of Estates and Charities directly in the disposal of residential and commercial property by overseeing the sale of the property and advising on the most appropriate method of sale whether it be Private Treaty, Tender or Auction.

Inheritance Tax Valuations

When someone dies, any land and buildings they own - or sometimes live in rent-free - are part of their estate for Inheritance Tax. To make sure you get an accurate valuation, you should use a professional valuer. The valuation should reflect the value at the time of death.

We regularly carry out these valuations in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

Expert Witness

Reports for litigation matters such as diminution in value and the extent of a surveyors liability. Matrimonial valuations are a common request and these can be carried out for one party or on a joint basis. Our reports are compliant with the Civil Procedure Rules.

Rent Reviews

We act for both landlords and tenants to advise on the rental value of the property and, if required can negotiate on behalf of the landlord or tenant to agree the correct rental value.

Schedules of Condition

A schedule providing a written statement of condition, generally accompanied by photographs, assessing the state of the property at the commencement of a lease which can be used for reference at the end of the term.

Schedule of Dilapidations

This is a list of repairs that are necessary to bring a property in good condition to comply with the terms of a lease. We can prepare a schedule either during the course of a tenancy or more usually at the end for either the landlord of tenant.
