Shared Ownership Valuations

Shared Ownership and Shared Equity
(Help to Buy) Valuations

Our Shared Ownership and Shared Equity valuations help you understand your value in the property.

The Government’s Help to Buy scheme and various shared ownership schemes administered by Housing Associations have been invaluable in assisting first-time buyers get on to the property ladder – especially if property deposit funds are limited.

The process of selling a property owned under one of these schemes, or staircasing in the case of Help to Buy, can often be confusing. Many estate agents and solicitors do not realise that a valuation needs to be carried out by an RICS Registered Valuer to provide a market value for the sale or purchase of your percentage share in your property.

In addition, we can also provide valuation advice in connection with the Right to Buy scheme, whereby a tenant can purchase their council or housing association house at a discounted rate. We have extensive local knowledge in working with local councils and tenants and challenging landlord valuations, by providing a conclusive report based on sales of similar property in the area.
