What is the purpose of a Market Rental Valuation?

A Market Rent valuation will provide a professional opinion of rental value for a property with respect to the prevailing rental market at the date of valuation. As such, the surveyor will objectively analyse and assess a number of factors which affect the relationship between occupiers, tenants and landlords in a market in order to come to an opinion of value.

The exact basis and purpose of a valuation will dictate various assumptions and disregards that a surveyor will take into account when coming to an opinion of value, however, the generally accepted definition of Market Rent from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and The International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC), is:

The estimated amount for which an interest in real property should be leased on the valuation date between a willing lessor and a willing lessee on appropriate lease terms in an arm’s length transaction, after proper marketing and where the parties had each acted knowledgeably, prudently and without compulsion.

Although the valuation will be based on objective analysis, it is important to recognise that the methodology behind it is not just a science, but an art, wherein the expertise and intuition of individual experts will play a part, hence why a Market Rent is a professional opinion of rental value.
