Savills International Valuations
The Savills International Valuations team covers professional valuations throughout Europe, North Africa and the Caribbean. In addition, we support Savills agency teams further afield, such as Quinta Properties.
Based in London and Oxford, the team has unrivalled experience with specialists in every sector from residential and holiday accommodation, hotels and resorts to visitor attractions, golf courses, sports venues and water-based activities. Acting in close cooperation with our network of offices providing up-to-date, on-the-ground agency knowledge, we can provide valuation advice for all purposes.
All Savills valuers hold a Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors qualification with established links to all national bodies in the countries in which we work. Our valuations are covered by comprehensive Professional Indemnity insurance and valuations are provided for loan security, private transfer, development strategy, accounts, tax, divorce, litigation and numerous other purposes. Our valuations are tailored, in-depth and priced to the requirements of our clients. We are panel valuers for all UK and most foreign banks, and are used to meeting the individual criteria set for any specific purpose.
Savills offers the reassurance that only the 'best in class' can give, backed by the best possible available information. For those investing in property of any type abroad, our valuers can advise not only on pricing and value, but are familiar with local taxation, local planning functions and requirements, and local ownership, occupational and tenure structures. We consider the effect of flights and local travel infrastructure patterns, the capacity and extent of local power and utility services, the financial stability of the region, the ability of leisure and other providers to maintain and extend facilities and the reasonableness of any service charges. Amongst a myriad of factors affecting value, we take into account resaleability, either for a planned exit or in the case of unforeseen circumstances, and letability, either long term or for short lets.
Our relationship with our International Associates is extremely important and provides us with local databases and a fund of knowledge on the issues affecting properties in every location. Above all, we promise to provide a service second to none.
