We are thinking of having our shared ownership flat valued - we have had our local estate agents round and they have valued the flat at between 235 and 260 thousands. Is the housing association valuation likely to reflect the market or are they likely to giver a lower valuation?

I don't know, but I have a shared ownership flat and I've always understood that they are likely to value it at below the market valuation. That's based on another couple who sold theirs and entered into an almighty fight with the HA about it. They did win, but it was a hassle.

Hi we are also thinking of selling our shared ownership house. If you decided to sell what would happen is you would have to get an independent surveyor in (at a cost of between £175 and £250 to you) they do a valuation report this is the figure the HA use. Hope that helps we are with hyde if you call your association they will send you details of what is needed.

The independent Surveyor is just that independent so will value your flat fairly
