Rating Valuation

Since its publication this book has become the standard for both students studying for their examinations and practitioners needing a comprehensive reference book covering rating law, valuation and, importantly, practice. This third edition brings the reader up to date with the changes for the 2010 Rating Revaluation, developments in case law, the new appeals regulations and current approaches to valuing many classes of hereditament, as well as highlighting the differences between cases in England and Wales. The book is well illustrated with example valuations showing both methods of valuation and the variety of property surveyors come across in practice. The authors have extensive experience in the subject and regularly lecture on rating, valuation and taxation matters.

Rating Law and Valuation

Rating Law and Valuation

Following the introduction of the uniform business rate in 1990, local property taxation changed dramatically, whilst retaining many of its historical and familiar characteristics. Rating Law and Valuation details the existing, non-domestic rating system from the principles of rate liability and the definition of hereditament, the rateable value, to the procedure for compiling and altering the rating lists. The book also discusses how the methods of valuation are used by rating valuers to produce rateable values for the more common property types. The text concludes with a similar treatment of Council Tax which is levied on domestic property. Rating Law and Valuation is written primarily for those studying property valuation as part of their course, and is an indispensible reference book for those taking professional courses of The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Incorporated Society of Valuers and Auctioneers (ISVA), and Institute of Revenue and Rating Valuation (IRRV). It is also a useful resource for practitioners who are required to deal with rating law and valuation but who do not do so on a regular basis.

Studying Human Populations

Elementary linear algebra and calculus are prerequisites, although the exposition is quite forgiving. Familiarity with statistical software at the outset is an advantage, but it can be developed while reading the first few chapters.
