Frequently Asked Questions

Who can instruct us ?

Although the majority of our valuation instructions are issued directly by banks, we are equally happy to work directly for private individuals or their advisors (brokers, accountants, solicitors, etc). The list of business types we have experience in appraising and valuing is a veritable A-Z, but we will always tell you the scope of our knowledge and experience to undertake a specific valuation. For example, we are not experts in the valuation of agricultural or stand-alone residential property.

How to instruct us

In order to act on your behalf, we require a signed letter of instruction, together with the fee. To discuss both the instruction and the fee, please contact one of our Operations Team, following which we will provide you with a letter of instruction and our Terms of Engagement, which we require be signed and returned to us.

The Valuation Process

Once we have received your instructions, we will make arrangements to inspect the property and gather any necessary information. When producing a Business Appraisal & Valuation Report, we require trading and other information in order to complete our report; this information will be requested when making arrangements for the inspection/appointment.

One of our RICS accredited and Registered Valuers will undertake the inspection of the property/business. At inspection, we will discuss the pre-requested trading and other information with the business operator/owner.

Following inspection, our valuer will complete their report, with every Pinder report approved and counter signed by one of our Directors. Once approved, our report will be sent to you by both e-mail and post.

Once you have received a copy of our report, either the valuer involved or one of our Operations Team will be pleased to discuss the report with you, whilst also liaising with any solicitors or other advisors acting on your behalf, as required.

How much will it cost?

That depends on what is required and we can tailor our service to meet a client’s specific needs. Our fees take into account the size and complexity of the property (and business) in question and we welcome the opportunity to discuss this and your requirements prior to agreeing an appropriate and competitive fee, so we can be sure of giving you the service and report you want.
