Book Description

The sixth edition of Valuation: Principles into Practice continues to be both a core text for all students undertaking surveying qualifications and a handy reference guide for valuers in practice. The new edition has been thoroughly updated with nine completely re-written chapters. The book provides extensive details of valuation principles and practices in agricultural, commercial, residential, industrial and leisure sectors. The balance of academic and practicing contributors explore the law and regulation within the field of valuation and include chapters on valuations for financial investments, taxation and rating insurance, as well as useful case studies and detailed approaches to valuation procedures for a variety of properties from farms to public houses.

With extensive market knowledge and the obvious benefit of his involvement with the five previous editions, Richard Hayward brings the sixth edition well into the twenty-first century. The book continues it’s tried and tested melding of ‘town and gown’, and the twenty six contributors to the twenty three chapters are all leading specialists in their fields.
