The valuation was requested by the bank in respect of a proposed £5 million development by a regional developer for four large bespoke houses.

By seeking expert property valuation consultancy from Vail Williams of the proposed development, the bank could minimise the risk of the debt facility.

Challenges

Drawing upon specific expertise, the commercial property valuation team conducted a detailed review of the planning consents, with particular focus on Local Authority requirements for Affordable Housing.

As part of the in-depth process, the developer’s assumed gross development value of £5 million was also reviewed, as were the estimated build costs.

This resulted in an appraisal and Market Value report of the proposed development.
