Bell Ingram has a team of experienced valuers to assist clients in providing valuations for a diverse range of property types and for a wide variety of purposes. From our network of offices we are able to monitor local, regional and national trends in property prices so that informed commentary can be given regarding factors influencing values, especially in heightened political times.

Our staff are knowledgeable about the varied issues of the property market and understand the key points which can apply across a wide range of circumstances. Whenever required we will provide valuation advice in accordance with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Valuation Standards (the ‘Red Book’). Equally, in situations where the Red Book does not apply – for example for litigation purposes – we can supply professional analysis and reports to support clients and their other professional advisors.

We routinely work on behalf of private and corporate clients, banks and other lenders, and the public sector.

Our reports are regularly required for:

  • Purchase and sale
  • Secured lending
  • Capital taxation – inheritance and capital gains tax, planning and calculations
  • Rent negotiation
  • Agricultural tenants’ ‘Right to Buy’ and waygoing claims
  • Litigation and divorce settlements
  • Compulsory purchase
  • Compensation
