"A value is valuable when the value of value is valuable to oneself."

 Dayananda Saraswati  1824-1883


Values and valuation are much discussed but often misunderstood.  In the financial world this can  lead to misunderstanding, market inefficiency and mispricing.

Valuology advises valuation providers, valuation users and professional organisations on how their processes and procedures can be improved to ensure that valuations are properly prepared and understood by those who rely on them. Our objective is to maximise market confidence in the valuations provided and minimise risks for providers and users.

IVSC proposing more prescription in IVS

At the end of January the IVSC issued a document "Additional Technical Revisions 2021", which proposes changes to the IVS issued in 2019.  Two of the changes proposed are:

  • To extend the remit of the IVSC to include setting requirements for valuers, not just the valuations they produce.

  • To greatly extend the glossary of mandatory definitions.

Both of these potentially could have significant impact on any valuer required to provide an “IVS Compliant” valuation, which includes all members of the RICS. It is therefore important that they make their voice heard. 

Comments are due by 30 April 2021

Resources for Valuers

We publish useful information for valuers on various technical issues.  Available as booklets or as eBooks, they provide an affordable resource for the busy practitioner.

Keeping Lookout

We review proposed new laws, regulations and standards that are relevant to valuers.  We then produce summaries of the key things valuers need to know and what we think of the proposals.  We also provide a copy of any response we make to consultations.
