Robust residential valuation advice through all market conditions

Our specialist skills extend to ground rents and leasehold enfranchisement, as well as expert witness advice in London and the north of England.
Capital Gains Tax: non-resident owners UK property
Previously non-residents did not have to pay Capital Gains Tax (CGT) when selling UK residential property. However, from 5 April 2015, CGT is payable by non-residents disposing of UK residential property on gains accrued after that date.
Our Residential Valuation team recommend that non-residents should have their properties re-valued as at 5 April 2015 for use in future CGT calculations, as and when these become necessary.
The alternative would be to commission (following a disposal) a retrospective valuation (as at 5 April 2015), which may not arise for many years. Retrospective valuations are typically less robust than market valuations that were prepared contemporaneously (with associated notes and photographs) and, as a result they may be less capable of withstanding challenge by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC). They are also generally more expensive to commission as they require greater and retrospective research.

“Allsop have provided the Bank with top class service and advice over the years and we greatly appreciate their commercial approach to providing the bank with the correct valuation. They are very responsive at all stages in the credit process (especially pre credit which is always helpful to ensure no surprises). Clients have remarked on the “value add” they bring and not just transactional valuation work, as they are on the market and are commercially aware due to their best in class auction house.
We are dealing with the same experienced and professional team members consistently and this provides everyone (bank and client) with comfort / certainty of delivery, on a timely basis and this has led to repeat business which is great for both parties. I would not hesitate to recommend Allsop to anyone in the property sector.”
Barry Deasy, Bank J. Safra Sarasin
“Allsop has undertaken valuations of large-scale portfolios for us since 1996, for accounts purposes, loan security and bond issues. They have demonstrated a particular understanding of complicated cash flow based valuations, and their knowledge and understanding of our business has resulted in some valuable forward looking advice. The team consistently meet deadlines and are a pleasure to work with.”
