Help to Buy Valuation Report
If you have a Help to Buy loan and are now selling your property or want to pay back the equity loan you will need an Independent Valuation Report from an RICS Registered Valuer to send to Target HCA.
Our Surveyor and Valuation Report meets all of the criteria set out by Target HCA.
The Valuation Report is valid for three months. If you do not complete the transaction in the three month period we can provide a Desktop Valuation as requested by Target HCA.
Advice on the repayment of the Help to Buy loan can be found here.
Private Valuation Report
There are many reasons why you may need a valuation report, for example:
If you are purchasing a property and don’t need a mortgage.
Your accountant may suggest you have one if you are going to visit your bank manager with a business proposal
There has been a death in the family and you need a Report for Probate.
You are going through a divorce or separation.
Probate Valuation Report
This Report is sometimes required if someone in your family passes away with a property as part of their estate.
A solicitor may advise the executor of the estate that they need to provide a valuation of the deceased property in valuing the estate for inheritance tax purposes.

Capital Gains Tax Valuation
If you sell a property that is not classed as your main residence, you will be liable to pay capital gains tax on the proceeds of the sale.

When acting as an expert witness, a surveyor has a duty to be truthful to the facts, and to give independent, objective and unbiased advice. If Court proceedings have started or if the matter progresses to Court the surveyor is bound by Part 35 of the Civil Procedure Rules and he must produce a report that complies with these rules.
