What is a valuer?

A valuer is a professional who carries out inspections in order to help determine the current market value of property and/or land. The role of valuer can be undertaken by an estate agent or by an independent professional (often a qualified surveyor). Typically, they act on the instructions of a vendor (seller) or a lending institution who are considering funding the purchase.

Buyers may also appoint a valuer to conduct a property valuation if they are considering purchasing a property (known as a vendor survey), in addition to structural surveys that assess its physical condition. Local authorities can also use valuers to help establish council tax and rating levels. Valuers may also be appointed to undertake residual valuation of land, i.e. work out the value of land with development potential.

Valuers will typically produce a property valuation as a report, supplemented with photographs and plans. Some of the details that a valuer may record include:
