Valuation of land for affordable housing Scotland

In Scotland, a valuation of land for affordable housing can be required for several reasons, including: advice for loan security, acquisition, sale, evaluation of options, planning purposes, compulsory purchase, taxation and development appraisal for grant purposes.

This guidance note aims to inform the valuer’s approach to the valuation of land for sites in Scotland where there is a requirement to provide affordable housing or where the provider of affordable housing is seeking grant finance from the Scottish government.
