How is the 3 The Old Works Black Cut valuation estimated?
A house or flat valuation is estimated using sold prices and house price trends of similar properties in the area.
Each valuation uses our Repeat Sales House Price Index, which tracks price trends in large areas such as cities or towns. We use the index and local price trends (e.g. price increases in a street or postcode) to estimate property value.
The value estimates are most accurate when a property has sold recently and when there are similar properties nearby.
A valuation can, in some cases, be inaccurate. For example, if there have been significant changes to a property since it was last sold (e.g. an extension).
We try to make the valuations as accurate as possible, but they are estimates. When buying or selling property, you should speak to a qualified professional.
Where are the figures sourced?
Sold house prices and property types/tenures are from HM Land Registry.
There is a time delay in property sales appearing in HM Land Registry, which can be up to three months.
 Other property details, such as energy efficiency, are estimates from a 2009 property survey.
What if the details are incorrect?
We generate all our property valuations programmatically. They cannot be manually edited based on new information, such as evidence of redevelopment.
If sold property prices or property types are incorrect, you should verify them with HM Land Registry. You can notify HM Land Registry of any errors.
If any other property details are incorrect or out-of-date, they will update automatically when next surveyed.
