Our valuers know offices, retail and industrial/distribution inside out. You might not be aware that we know a number of specialist markets just as well.
Every property is different. Some operate in specific markets and should be valued by people with specialist skills in those markets. You can be confident that we’ll only use valuers with the appropriate experience, skills and knowledge to value properties in these specialist markets.

Extensive knowledge of sector trends and understanding of operational considerations allows us to react quickly to deliver specialist solutions, whether for airport owners, handling agents, airlines or related businesses, be they operators or institutional support services.
We have been providing nationwide valuation advice to the caravan park sector for over 20 years. The sector provides a wide range of accommodation including holiday touring parks, static caravan parks (being owner occupied or fleet), mobile residential parks, self-catering accommodation and holiday lets.
We understand that, to assess the market rent and value of a car park, we need to consider the nature of the car park holding. We’ll look at operational agreements with car park operators as well as the income generated from each car park for the past 12 months.
We’re experienced valuers in this sector, having undertaken work for NCP, the largest independent private car park operator in the UK, as well as for private companies and local authorities.
We’re experienced at valuing crematoria for investors, developers, private operators and local authorities.
As the majority of crematoria are still in public sector ownership, we undertake valuations on an operational entity basis, taking into account the unique characteristics of the facility which is valued on a depreciated replacement cost basis.

We use our specialist experience and understanding of legislative changes to provide support to investors, lenders, developers and owner occupiers.

Ancillary services are becoming increasing important in the health and fitness sector; we can also help our clients through the various processes and significant property costs of expansion and consolidation.
The value of a healthcare property is usually based on profitability, a different approach from mainstream commercial valuation. Our experienced specialist valuers will look at every item of expenditure to make sure that it reflects a competent operator.We’ve acted on behalf of many of the major lending institutions, property funds, private investors, charities and operators in the long term care, specialist care and private hospital sectors.
