Rating Valuation of Tenant’s Improvements and Fit-Out

Module Duration: 1 hour 1 minute


Areas covered

A topic that has regularly proved vexatious to Valuation Officers and private practitioners alike; we look at the issues both historic and current.

  • Underlying case law, old and new
  • Application to retail hereditaments
  • Application to office hereditaments
  • Identifying what is rateable?
  • Valuing what is rateable?
  • Valuation methodology
  • Regional variation
  • Age and obsolescence
  • Post Covid market changes

In trying to make sense of the above, a number of questions arise which we will attempt to tackle:

  • If rating reflects the market when should valuing to the rating hypothesis take precedence?
  • How does one assess value to the occupier?
  • Is compromise an outdated concept?
