Reinstatement Valuation

5 Stars - Based on 38 Client Reviews

A Reinstatement Cost Assessment (RCA), also known as a Fire Insurance Valuation (FIV) , is a report which provides a figure for the cost to demolish and rebuild your property for insurance purposes. This figure can be provided to your Insurance company to make sure that your building insurance premium is adequate to cover for any future claims which may result in total damage to the property.

As part of our service, we will undertake a measured survey, undertake a desk top study and then prepare an accurate report based on our findings. It is important that the Reinstatement Cost Assessment is undertaken by a Chartered Surveyor as any discrepancies may leave you over insured with higher premiums or under insured, in which case your building insurance may not be adequate to cover the full cost of a future claim.

Further details can be found in the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Guidance Note: Reinstatement cost assessment of buildings 3rd edition.
