Help to Buy Valuations

If you have used the Help To Buy scheme and are now in a position to sell your home, remortgage, or start repaying your loan, then you need to get an RICS regulated valuation.

An RICS valuation is needed in order to work out the amount of deposit which should be repaid. We carry out Help To Buy Valuations that follow the exact requirements of the scheme and inspect the inside and outside of the property.

It is important to remember that the valuation is only valid for 3 months. After 3 months, there is a two-week opportunity for you to request an updated “desktop” valuation which will extend your valuation for a further 3 months. After those 2 weeks, the Scheme will require a re-inspection.

What criteria must be met?

You MUST hire a RICS regulated independent valuer to carry out the valuation:

• The valuer must be registered with RICS and be independent to an estate agent.

• They cannot be related to you.

• The chartered valuer must provide at the least ‘3 comparable properties and sale prices’.

• Those properties must be like-for-like, with regards to property type, size, and age, and must be within a 2-mile radius of your own property.

• Valuations carried out for bank or mortgage purposes will NOT be accepted.

• The chartered valuer must inspect the property interior and provide a full valuation report [not a survey].

• The Valuation Report needs to be presented be on headed paper, signed by a RICS surveyor, dated, and addressed to the appropriate association.
