Build to rent valuation

Accurate property valuation is essential for informing investment strategy and decision-making, and when it comes to a nascent sector like Built to Rent, experience and insight are essential.

Boasting an enviable list of Build to Rent case studies, our specialist valuers fundamentally understand the nuances of this emerging asset class. Having worked with a broad client base on a range of single and mixed-use developments over the past two decades in the private, public and charity sectors, our valuers use their breadth of experience to value engineer opportunities and maximise property value for the benefit of clients. We can also draw on first-hand knowledge of operational costs, from our property management colleagues, to inform our valuations.

Financial probity, risk and reward can only be managed through the best possible independent and up to date advice. Our valuation service provides robust asset and rental value assessments that inform viability, design, planning and the potential for alternative development options and is also essential for borrowing, tax planning, acquisition and disposal.
