Quick Val

Quick Val is a valuation model created by CDLH to provide a potential valuation estimate. It is not a Market Valuation but an initial view of potential value. A formal valuation can only be undertaken when all the factors influencing value are reviewed. However our Quick Val does provide an initial assessment. At present the calculator only works on Freehold properties.


We have provided an value estimate below. Please note the figure will be more accurate of you have completed ALL the information.

Calculation in progress, please wait.

The level of revenue at your business is below our Valuation model generator or the room count to revenue ratio is outwith the model parameters. The model cannot provide a value estimate. Please contact us to discuss an informal or formal Valuation.

The estimated value provided by Quick Val is NOT a valuation and should at no time be taken as a formal or informal opinion of value. Please contact us if you wish to discuss the provision of a formal RICS regulated valuation report for loan security etc. All CDLH RICS regulated formal valuation reports are covered by our £5m per property professional indemnity policy.   Alternatively if you wish to discuss an informal appraisal for business sale we would be pleased to hear from you. Telephone our head office in  Glasgow  on 0141 303 0650 and ask for Alan Creevy or Peter Darroch for a confidential discussion

Frequently Asked Questions

Are valuations based on revenue?
The simple answer to this is no.  Values of hotels, restaurants, public houses and other leisure related assets are generally established by a multiplier on long term sustainable profitability i.e. a yield on earnings. However, there is very often a relationship between revenue and likely profitability for different businesses in different locations. We have, therefore, devised formulas which look at revenue and review this, alongside other information provided in the calculation process. The result can give a helpful indication of potential value.
Why do you require a wages cost?
The relationship between wages and revenue can often give a good indication of the likely level of profitability of any business.  If, for instance, the property is larger than is economically viable i.e. it has a very significant floor area with a large number of bars and kitchens etc., all of which require staffing but is in a location which cannot sustain a healthy level of revenue, the wages as a percentage of revenue will be in excess of the typical market norm. We utilise this information again to provide a helpful indication of potential value.
How can I obtain a formal valuation?
A formal valuation is typically required for loan security purposes, accounting purposes or in relation to litigation etc.  CDLH undertakes numerous RICS regulated valuations of a wide variety of licensed, leisure and hotel assets.  Please contact us directly at contact@cdlh.co.uk or telephone our head office in Glasgow on 0141 331 0650 when we will be pleased to provide you with a fee quote for a formal valuation if required.
