Type Speaker CPD Hours Level
3 IntroductionInformation


It is a mandatory requirement that any chartered surveyor providing a written valuation report for clients must be registered for the RICS Valuer Registration Scheme and to be fully conversant with the requirements of the RICS Valuations - Professional Standards 2017 (The 'Red Book').

However, the Red Book itself and IVS 105 provide little in the way of practical details of the use of the five valuation methods.

This live broadcast session will cover practical aspects of valuations for the Red Book, relating to choice and use of the various valuation methodologies and reporting, particularly for commercial property valuations.

The session will be interactive and practical with participants undertaking valuations and participating in group exercises. The session is at introductory level.
