How do I get a valuation on a property as a tenant as the owner wishes to sell?

I am currently a tenant in a property, the owner wishes to sell, the property is in need of much modernisation, but I am interested in buying the property, the owner has given me consent to get a valuation, how do I get a valuation & what are the costs likely to be?

  • When a property is valued you need to try to understand the difference between the price that owner would market the property at and the price that she/he is likely to be happy to sell for. This will be influenced by a number of factors; amount of equity in the property, strength of desire/need to sell and of course the market in your area for similar properties which in turn will be impacted by supply versus demand. The best thing you can do is research well, then probably to sit down with your landlord and discuss your thoughts. Make sure you explore refurb costs too as these will come as quite a surprise if you are not familiar with the market.
