Equity release valuation process

Article | Dec 2023

When exploring the possibility of releasing equity from your home, you want to be certain that you are receiving an unbiased and accurate property valuation. At Responsible Life, we recognise the importance of transparency in this process and want to provide clarity on how the valuation process unfolds.

Who is responsible for the valuation?

Contrary to what might be believed, the valuation is conducted by a chartered surveyor. This professional, being a qualified and registered member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, ensures an impartial assessment of your property's value. This expert is committed to maintaining a reputation as a fair and independent valuer.

Your adviser's role

Our specialist advisers at Responsible Life are dedicated to supporting you every step of the way. If you ever find a valuation that doesn't align with your expectations, we're here to help you challenge it where appropriate. While we cannot guarantee a change in valuation, we can assure you unwavering support. Additionally, you can rest assured that the lender will never assess the value of your home themselves.
