The 2010 Rating Lists Cost Guide has been prepared for the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) and Scottish Assessors Association (SAA) for valuations on the contractor’s basis. It is not intended for use for other purposes such as the preparation of asset or insurance valuations.

It is intended to be used to assess the estimated replacement cost (ERC) of the hereditament at stage 1 of the contractor’s basis of valuation. It also provides guidance for adjustments to be made at stage 2 to assess the adjusted replacement cost (ARC).

While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information given in the guide, the VOA and SAA do not in any way accept liability for loss of any kind resulting from the use made by any person of such information.
