Estate Surveyor and Valuer is any person engaged in the profession of Estate Surveying and Valuation and registered with the Estate Surveyors and Valuers Registration Board of Nigeria (ESVARBON).
All our valuers are qualified and certified by ESVARBON and are members of NIESV.

Our Valuers work on an average turnaround time of two weeks from receipt of instructions for a full valuation report. During this time, an appointment is made for the valuer to inspect the property, an external and internal inspection of the property is undertaken, the market is analyzed, comparable sales are considered and the report is completed. The physical inspection of the property takes around 30 minutes for an average sized residential dwelling.
A valuation by a Chartered and Practising Valuer is a legal document which can be challenged in a court of law and for this reason must be evidenced and be reproducible if called into question.
Valuers are bound by a code of ethical conduct which ensures objectivity and independence in the assessment of the value of a property. This code of conduct requires valuers to be independent and have no conflict of interest with a valuation they undertake.
A real estate agent’s assessment is only an estimation of price, it is not a professional valuation prepared by a formally qualified, experienced and independent property valuer.
A standard valuation report generally includes the following information:
The estimate of value at the relevant date
The purpose of the valuation
Title details for the property
Location, town planning and available services
Dimensions of land
Comparable sales with photographs where appropriate
Repairs or renovations needed where appropriate
Any relevant environmental aspects
Maps, plans and photographs of the subject property.
