Reinstatement Cost Assessments

Having an accurate reinstatement cost assessment of your property/portfolio is essential.

Why HartDixon?

Insurers typically require a professional evaluation of a property’s rebuilding cost in the event of its total destruction, which is known as a Reinstatement Cost Assessment. Preparing an accurate Reinstatement Cost Assessment is a necessity to ensure that your property is adequately insured. HartDixon has a varied skillset across all property sectors and as such we are able to provide accurate Reinstatement Cost Assessments for all property types.

Our technical skills combined with our experience and understanding of construction techniques and processes, honed through the various services that we offer, places Hart Dixon in a unique position in being able to offer reliable reinstatement cost assessments.

We have extensive experience in preparing reinstatement cost assessments.  Instructions include preparing Reinstatement Cost Assessments for individual properties including Grade I listed buildings such as custom House on the banks of the Thames, to large scale buildings such as the 36 storey Euston Tower and Berkley Square House.  We are pride ourselves on our ability to manage and coordinate RCA’s for large scale property portfolios including the recent completion of a portfolio in excess of 90 properties with a combined assessment figure in excess of £685 million.

Having an accurate reinstatement cost assessment of your property/portfolio is essential.  If the assessment is too high, you unnecessarily pay a high premium for buildings insurance, too low, and the insurance won’t cover your loss should an incident occur. Our unique skillset enables HartDixon to provide accurate Reinstatement Cost Assessments across all property types, ranging from Grade I listed properties to multi-storey city centre office developments.
