Valuation of rural property (ARCHIVED)

Formerly VIP 5, Rural property valuation, (former edition provided for information purposes only).

Members providing valuations of rural property must comply with the RICS Valuation Standards (the 'Red Book'). All references within this guidance note are to the 7th edition (2011) of the Red Book.

This guidance note is intended to act as a signpost to relevant elements within the structure of the Red Book and to prompt valuers to consider all relevant matters. It is not intended to be fully comprehensive, or to provide a template, as valuers and their firms will have their own approach and styles. It has been written in the context of UK law and practice.
