Regulators and professional bodies are recognising the importance of energy efficiency in building stock; they are encouraging valuers to work with their clients to collect more comprehensive building data.
The REVALUE project partners have published a fact sheet for valuers, outlining the priorities and providing recommendations:
- An environment in which acceptable energy standards are rising should be considered when undertaking valuations;
- Valuers should be aware that leading financiers may be seeking to require explicit information on EE;
- Valuers are strongly advised to collect and store data on EE characteristics when inspecting properties so that they can be built into matrices of comparable evidence.
