PROPERTY VALUATION – VALUING SUSTAINABILITY AND VALUING IN UNCERTAIN TIMES AND RED BOOK 2017 UPDATE

After a period of significant consultation, the International Valuation Standards have been rewritten and expanded. The RICS have included these in full in the new 2017 Red Book. It is incumbent upon valuers to be fully conversant with the new changes as part of the continuing quality assurances procedures. This talk will address the changes to the Red Book in addition to looking at the uncertainty the property world is currently facing especially since the BREXIT “yes” vote. In addition, the talk will look at the impact of the Energy Act 2011 which will make it unlawful from April 2018 to let residential or commercial properties with an EPC Rating of F or G (i.e. the lowest 2 grades of energy efficiency) and how you deal with these changes when valuing property.

  • The new 2017 Red Book … all guidance is now mandatory
  • Acknowledging uncertainty in valuations
  • RICS guidance on valuations and (un)certainty
  • What is market value in a volatile world?
  • What will the EPC letting restriction mean to the valuation of individual properties and portfolios?
  • How do you reflect the possible lack of marketability in values?

Nick French, Professor in Real Estate and Montagu Evans Fellow in Real Estate, Oxford Brookes University

COMPULSORY PURCHASE – RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN LAW AND GOOD PRACTICE 

At present, the law relating to compulsory purchase powers and provision of compensation is not without complication and is undergoing a period of considerable reform. At the same time, the use of the compulsory purchase regime is being encouraged by Government to assist local authorities in speeding up housing delivery, encourage the build out of stalled sites, brownfield sites and to bring forward commercial and town centre developments. This talk will cover:

  • Recent reforms relating to the CPO process
  • Compensation update
  • Lessons to be learned from the Aylesbury Estate CPO
  • The importance of Human Rights considerations and the Public Sector Equality Duty
  • Proposals for further reform

Matthew Collings, Principal Associate, Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP

THE ENERGY ACT – THE IMPACT OF MEES LEGISLATION AND THE VALUE OF DATA

The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) regulations will make it unlawful from April 2018 to let buildings in England and Wales which do not achieve a minimum Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of E.  This talk will give an explanation of what this legislation actually means and how it will practically affect you and your clients, the associated risks to future value and liquidity and what the best course of action is to mitigate the risks. The talk will also address the value of data to the property industry and how this information can be used in a practical way.

The Energy Act & Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)

  • What does the latest government guidance say on MEES?
  • What does the current MEES timeline look like?
  • Are there any exemptions for MEES and what are the penalties for non-conforming?

The Value of Data

  • Why is data valuable to the property industry?
  • How do you turn data into information?
  • Case studies on how data analysis has delivered significant returns

Chris Bennett, Managing Director, EVORA – Sustainability consulting for commercial real estate

DILAPIDATIONS – A FRESH DIRECTION?

After 6 editions RICS has finally incorporated guidance for valuers in its Dilapidations Guidance Note – 7th Edition, this talk will consider the new guidance and what is expected of valuers. It will also include a case law update and a look at the potential effect of MEES.

  • A review of RICS Dilapidations Guidance Note 7th Edition – what’s changed? A valuation focus
  • Case Law update including:
    • Car Giant v London Borough of Hammersmith
    • Moor Row Ltd v DWF LLP (Scottish Court)
  • Valuation and Supersession, are they the same thing?
  • MEES – Will there be any effect?

David Gilbert, National Head of Standards & Practice, Lambert Smith Hampton

PLANNING – ARE WE REALLY ‘PLANNING FOR GROWTH’?

Despite successive Governments promising a faster, more efficient planning system, many professionals still struggle to navigate its ever changing legislation. This session will pick up a number of current themes and offer practical advice on key elements of planning, permitted development and new emerging initiatives such as Permission in Principle.

  • Is ‘Plan-led’ working?- a brief review of the ‘Plan-led’ system and its relationship with the National Framework
  • Navigating permitted development
  • Permission in Principle: a ‘3rd Way’ of getting planning permission?
  • Neighbourhood Plans: licensed NIMBYISM?

Ian Anderson, Senior Director of Planning, Cushman and Wakefield
