This may seem like a really strange question, but how do I go about getting a written valuation on my property, as I've been told I'll need to provide one for an IVA but have no idea where or how to get one.

Hi,

Get a local estate agent out to value. Tell him you are looking to move and ask for it in writing.

I did as Jan suggests and only said we were thinking of moving nothing definite. They were fine to come and I'm sure mine just put it in writing as a matter of course. I needed 3 valuations if I remember rightly. x
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

Your IP may be able to assist if you cannot source a free written valuation. I have to do this for my own clients occasionally, and it is rarely a problem - as it is done on a drive-by basis so you don't even have to be at home.

On line valuations are rarely accurate, and for your own benefit I would get a professional one performed.

Payplan arranged for a proper valuation on our house and I believe they will do the same when it comes to remortgaging.

Kallis, you will see from my postings that PayPlan were about as much use as a chocolate tea pot when it came to the house valuation to attempt the remortgage. In the end I used zoopla.co.uk to find a list of estate agents in my area that would provide a free written valuation. Probably going a bit off topic, but I’ve been very pleased with PayPlan up until now.

It may be that I have problems in that area when it comes to it, but I was led to believe that the same estate agent would come out to do the valuation when the time comes.

If it's the case that they won't come out then I will be telling a few porkies to local agents to get a written valuation!

I have also been happy with Payplan so far!
