Do I Need A Shared Ownership Survey?

When it comes to increasing your share or selling your property, this process is called staircasing. Your Housing Provider will handle this for you, but we come in as part of this process.

When the equity in a property is shared, the other percentage of the ownership is shared with a housing association. Different housing associations have their own rules regarding selling properties or repaying loans.

Independent Valuation from RICS Certified Valuer

If you wish to pay off part of your loan or sell your property, you must have an independent valuation from an RICS Certified Valuer. This is someone who is regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and is independent of any estate agency or similar organisation.

Valuations should be carried out per the RICS Red Book – a set of professional and ethical standards that valuations must adhere to.

Winfields Chartered Surveyors London is regulated by the RICS.

Property Inspection

Depending on the housing association and the reason for the Valuation, home improvements you have made since your occupancy may or may not be taken into account when assessing the current value of your home.

We will inspect the property and look at how it was constructed, its location and the size and number of rooms. The property’s general condition is also to be taken into account but will not be inspected in great detail. The Valuation is based on the surveyor’s observations, local knowledge, and comparisons with recent sales of like-for-like properties in the local area. The valuation is valid for three months.

Renewing Your Valuation

If you need to renew the Valuation after this period because your sale has not gone through, we can conduct a desktop valuation to extend the original report for a further three months. However, this is a chargeable service.

We at Winfields Chartered Surveyors London are happy to help you, so please get in touch with us.
