Homemove - Book Survey Repay Background

How much will you need to repay on your help to buy?

Equity loans are calculated based on the market value of your property and the equity loan percentage amount when you sell your home. RICS valuations or sales prices are used to determine the market value of your property (whichever one is higher).  Interest, fees, and any other payments you still owe are included in the total amount you repay. Before completion, you must pay them back in full. To determine the value of your property a RICS surveyor will give you an accurate estimation.

What is a RICS Red Book Valuation?

Valuations based on the RICS Red Book differ from appraisals based on estate agents' valuations. Using their extensive knowledge and experience, surveyors will assess the size, condition, and location of the property.

We value properties based on the results of this assessment in conjunction with similar properties that have recently sold in the local area.

By utilising the guidelines issued by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, Red Book Valuations provide an industry standard when it comes to property valuation methodology and details.

Full redemption

Your Help to Buy loan must be repaid if you sell your property. RICS Help to Buy valuation determines how much must be repaid depending on the property's value at the time.


It is also necessary to have a Help to Buy valuation if you intend to 'staircase'. Your proportion of ownership increases when you partially repay your loan. In the event that the value of the property increases, the amount you owe increases with it. The outstanding loan amount decreases if the value falls. In order to ensure that the calculations with respect to monies owed are accurate, it is essential that you get an independent valuation when any changes to your loan are made.

How much does a Help-to-Buy valuation cost?

You can expect to pay between £195 - £850 for a help-to-buy valuation from a RICS surveyor in your area depending on the property price and the number of bedrooms the property has. The bigger the property the more time it takes to complete the valuation and find comparable property sales. Homemove - Survey Star Icon
