what happens at a property valuation?

Do you want to know how much your property will rent for? Or maybe you’re fed up of unrealistic valuations?


Well, this short video will tell you what happens at a rental valuation.

Hello, my name’s Bevan Mottram, owner of Kelham Square and we’ve been managing property in Sheffield for over 10 years. So the first question that we always get asked is, “How much will my property rent for?” So of course we can give you an estimated market rental valuation, but in order for us to help you further it’s always a good idea for us to visit you at your property.

During the visit, the first thing to do is actually have a look around the place so that we can get a good idea of the general condition of decoration, any appliances, any furnishings, and maybe your property’s got a hidden selling feature that might have been overlooked. Next up is health and safety.

Now, health and safety legislation does tend to change quite often. So depending on what services and appliances are actually installed, your property, specific advice here will help you make the next decision on how you can comply with the legal requirements.

Okay, listen improvements, it’s always a good idea to get another person’s opinion of any improvements that might be needed within the property. So maybe it needs a fresh decoration, maybe a new carpet, whatever somebody thinks may improve your chances of renting the property. An important thing to remember is, there is no actual definitive list.

When you’ve had the chance to talk through the main points, such as condition, health and safety, and any improvements that may need to be made, an accurate market rental valuation can be established, helping you make your next decision.

So if you would like to discuss your requirements or you have any other questions, please feel free to visit us at our website, Thank you for watching and please let us know if we can help.
