Estates Gazette – 2007 – 348 pages
The fourth edition of Statutory Valuations has been completely revised and expanded and draws on the expertise of several new authors.
The text reflects the effect of the considerable statutory changes over the ten years since the last edition. There are new chapters dealing with taxation (income tax, corporation tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax, stamp duty land tax and VAT) and with rating and council tax. As in previous editions, there is full coverage of the valuation implications of regulation of the landlord and tenant relationship in commercial property; the impact of both the Rent Acts and leasehold reform on residential property; as well as comprehensive material on the background to, and assessment of, compulsory purchase and planning compensation.
This book is designed both for students and practitioners and is a must-buy for anyone seeking a comprehensive analysis of the law relating to valuation as well as practical approaches to dealing with valuation problems. The clear concise narrative provides worked examples of valuations.
