David Cooper Associates Chartered Surveyors regularly undertake Reinstatement Cost Valuations for insurance purposes on behalf of residential and commercial property owners and occupiers, insurance companies and lenders to confirm that any particular property is adequately and suitably insured against loss and damage and the usual perils such as fire, escape of water and subsidence.

Our Reinstatement Cost Report will include:

  • The recommended sum to include for insurance purposes
  • Description of the property and confirmation of materials used in its construction
  • Confirmation of what that sum includes
  • Confirmation of what that sum does not include
  • General recommendations so far as insurance is concerned
  • Liaising with the instructed solicitor
  • Representations, both written and in person to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal (the LVT), if necessary

It should be appreciated that the reinstatement cost of any property will not necessarily be as the same as the market value. It is recommended therefore that the reinstatement cost for your property should be updated at regular intervals.
