Valuation

Secured lending - Valuation is a core function that underpins all property transactions and ownership. In short, all those who occupy, own, develop or trade in today's sophisticated economy rely on competent and impartial valuation advice.

We act for many of the UK’s lenders, delivering loan security valuation advice on a diverse range of properties and portfolios within London and the Home Counties.

Our valuations are based on our team’s market knowledge and we have specialists in a range of sectors and property types, as well as an in-depth understanding of market conditions.

We utilise various software packages including Argus Developer to undertake detailed development and residual appraisals as well as Argus Capitalisation to undertake both commercial property and all types of investment valuations.

We ensure a peer review of all valuations before conclusions are reached and the report is jointly signed.

Our valuations for secured lending are undertaken in accordance with the RICS Valuation Professional Standards incorporating the International Valuation Standards (The Red Book).

The valuation department includes a team of experienced Chartered Surveyors who are all RICS Registered Valuers and Kirkby Diamond is an RICS Regulated Firm.
