Across our offices Bell Ingram has an experienced team providing valuations for a diverse range of rural property types and for a wide variety of purposes. We monitor local, regional and national trends in property prices to give informed commentary , especially in heightened political and economic times.

Our RICS Registered Valuers 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’).
