Capital and rental valuation of fuel stations (archived)

Fuel stations are among those types of property generally referred to as 'trade-related property'. They are normally bought and sold having regard to their trading potential. Guidance on the valuation of individual trade related properties in the RICS Red Book considers the criteria to be adopted by valuers when assessing the value of an individual trade-related property.

It relates to a wide range of trade-related property, including fuel stations. The terms defined in that guidance are used in this information paper, which deals with its application to the valuation of fuel stations, including those that are allied to convenience stores or are part of more complex properties such as motorway service areas, where it is assumed that trading will continue. It has been written specifically with regard to the law and practice in England, Wales and Scotland.
