Role Purpose: To play a key part within the residential valuation and advisory team, and in giving market leading advice to institutions, fund managers, developers, property companies, and more.

The Residential Valuation and Advisory team is a dynamic group of over 30 staff that provides market leading advice to institutions, fund managers, developers, property companies, international banks and PLCs. Reporting into a Director, the role will be to assist a proactive, specialist team in providing valuations for loan security, investment and strategic advice to a broad range of clients.  The individual will be involved in valuing assets across the residential sphere but with a primary focus on the Build to Rent (PRS) sector.
We have nationwide coverage, with particular expertise in London and the South East. We provide valuations covering all residential assets including Build to Rent (PRS) opportunities, developments, strategic land, ground rent investments and high value single homes within Prime Central London. Our valuations are fully supported by a dedicated wider Residential team that offers a multi-disciplinary approach from sales and marketing, capital markets (Build to Rent (PRS)), land agency, planning, and market leading research.

We are the clear market leader in the burgeoning Build to Rent (PRS) sector.  Clients include L&G, M&G, Grainger/APG, Invesco, Aberdeen, LaSalle, Fizzy Living and Delancey amongst others.  We provide the full spectrum of services in this sector from regular valuations to adhoc acquisition advisory.  High profile recent instructions include the bi-annual valuation of the largest solus Build to Rent (PRS) investment in the UK, East Village, and acquisition valuation advice in respect of M&G’s acquisition of Carmen Street in East London.

Our team is at the forefront of valuing large, complex and high value residential development projects. Our work regularly spans the full development life-cycle from the valuation of land for acquisition and lending, through the development process with valuations for refinancing and company accounts and to completion with work for investment funds. We are regularly engaged on high profile, landmark development projects that frequently need the input of cross-service line project teams. Working within our team offers the opportunity to gain true insight in to the acquisition, development and financing of market leading development projects.  A recent example includes the valuation of Wembley Park for a consortium of banks including Wells Fargo, AIG and CPPIB.  This complex development site has consent for over 4,000 residential units with the developer, Quintain, planning to hold all units for private rental.
