A lot of people think that rebuild values are related to the market value of their property, however there is no co-relation between market value and rebuild value. You could have a one bedroom flat in central London with a market value of over £1 million and a rebuild of just over £100,000 and then you could have a four bedroom house somewhere else with a market value of £120,000 and a rebuild of £100,000. When a mortgage valuation is carried out the surveyor will normally give two figures – a market valuation and a rebuild value so the rebuild value can usually be found on a valuation report or mortgage survey. If one of these is not available there are a number of online rebuild calculators you can use such as the one found at www.bcis.co.uk which is the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) building cost information service.Do you offer car insurance?
