Asset Valuations

Valuations form the foundations of modern property markets.

The confidence they provide stands behind a Company’s financial accounts, the loans made by lending institutions, developments that are to be undertaken or the management decisions that are enacted. Insight and accuracy are everything.

We understand the dynamics that impact on a valuation, the regulatory principles that underline them, the sector and local market knowledge and the importance of a succinct and timely service. Our national network of offices provide exceptional insight into a wide range of asset classes, from the traditional offices, retail, industrial and residential sectors, through to evolving operational real estate markets including hotels, leisure, education, healthcare, infrastructure and minerals.

We have a team of more than 150 RICS registered valuers, each with a unique understanding of the sectors in which they specialise. We value properties for purposes including loan security, financial reporting, expert witness, acquisitions and disposals, best value, taxation and development viability. Accuracy and quality are reinforced through our valuation panel, with changes in market conditions, perceptions and sentiment constantly monitored through engagement with capital markets and agency colleagues.

Our team will give you the confidence you need to make the decisions that matter to your business.

Property and Asset Management

Our Property and Asset Management team was created to meet the demands of investors looking for a more personal and tailored service. One size does not fit all. We like diversity, creativity, solutions not problems and, above all, flexibility. Offering our clients, investors and their customers a service tailored to their needs and not the other way around.

We will work with you throughout the investment cycle, from pre-acquisition business planning to site mobilisation, from purchase due-diligence to tenant engagement and rent collection, to provide a cohesive and turn-key service.

We support investors by pulling together the component parts of an investment portfolio to deliver ‘sale ready’ and efficiently managed investments with minimal fuss. We drive and protect value and income by taking a hands-on approach to managing assets. We will write and lead the execution of business plans, engage and manage your tenants, set and control service charge budgets, proactively manage the properties and collect the rents.

It’s a simple idea: offer a partner-led service and treat each client as an individual. We work with property companies, pension funds, charities and UHNWIs across all asset classes throughout the UK. We’re in this to grow relationships, not just transactions.

When you succeed we do.

Value Recovery

Dealing with non-performing loans secured by real estate assets. Sometimes loans have problems. Circumstances change and the borrower’s original intentions can’t be fulfilled. We can help both lenders and borrowers find a solution where the loan is linked to, and secured by, real estate investments. Our aim is to help maximise the value that can be recovered from the secured asset, as maximising value will be in the interests of both the lender and the borrower, its customer.

We can provide routine market updates focussing on particular sectors to help lenders stay aware of market trends.

As concerns mount over individual loans or classes of loans, lenders may want a review, both to ascertain the current value of the asset and to look at anticipated future performance and what steps can be taken to best protect value.

Where a borrower is proposing to carry out works to the subject property, or to make other changes, we can advise on the anticipated impact on value or trading performance.

Where works or changes are to be undertaken, we can provide oversight for the lender, particularly if the lender is providing additional funding to support such works.

Where a loan isn’t performing for the lender and decisive action is being considered, we can advise on enforcement options. Whether following a consensual approach, or appointing a fixed charge (LPA) receiver, or placing the company into administration is the right approach will need to be carefully examined to assess the best course.

We have experienced and qualified fixed charge (LPA) receivers who accept appointments to take control of the asset(s) and, working with the lender, to recover the loan either through delivering a quick sale or holding the property to stabilise it and undertake such asset management initiatives as are appropriate and agreed. We also have the experience of working with Insolvency Practitioners, appointed as Administrators or Liquidators, and providing the support they need to maximise the recovery from a corporate insolvency.

Why Gerald Eve?

  • We have an experienced team focussing on Value Recovery drawn from across our business with backgrounds in valuation, asset management and receivership.
  • We are organised by property sectors, meaning our valuation teams have a deep understanding of the asset type they specialise in dealing with. This includes specialist investment classes – e.g. hotels, leisure and healthcare – as well as traditional investment categories of offices, retail, industrial and residential.
  • We have the largest planning and development teams of any real estate advisory firm. When dealing with non-performing loans where exploring alternative use or development potential may be crucial if recovery is to be maximised, the skills of the planning and development team are a game-changer.
  • We are a partnership. We have no external owners or investors and we are therefore fully independent.
  • We have a substantial Capital Markets business; our Value Recovery team are therefore well informed by what is happening now in the property investment world and therefore the trends that are impacting value.
