  • If you are commissioning someone to value your house then yes you will.

  • No is the short answer. You can get a free valuation of your (or indeed anyone else's) property from this site. Furthermore if you propose selling your property you could get a range of free valuations from local estate agents but of course they could be "fliyng a kite" to tempt you. If you seek an accurate valuation whether for sale, purchase, letting, compulsory purchase or taxation etc then you should employ a local chartered valuation surveyor. You can find out their contact details from www.rics.org.uk.

  • You can receive a valuation from an Estate Agent free of charge. You could also assess the value of your property yourself by using this website and comparing prices. You can also employ a Chartered Surveyor for a valuation which is more accurate.

  • Agree with the answers above. Most estate agencies will arrange a valuation for free. it is always advisable to arrange a valuation with more than 1 agency, and instruct the one you think can sell your house the quickest. It is not always advisable to instruct the agency who quotes you the highest price, as this may mean it has been over priced, and may not sell.

  • Depending on what the valuation is for then no. If you require a formal valuation for the revenue/capital gains/probate then are chartered surveyor will probably be required and will cost. However if you need an idea of the value of your house simply get local agents to have a look, this should be free and without oblibation. Indeed many will advertise as such.
