Residential Property Appraisal, Volume 1 and 2 is a handbook not only for students studying surveying but also for surveyors and others involved in the appraisal of residential property.

Volume 1 has been updated and covers the valuation process as it relates to residential properties, particularly when valuation is undertaken for secured lending purposes. It addresses the basic skills required, the risks posed in a valuation, the key drivers of value, emerging issues that impact valuation and the key legal and RICS Regulatory considerations that a valuer needs to understand.

Volume 2 of the book goes on to address the inspection and survey of residential properties, covering new technology, modern methods of construction, problem plants and pests, damp in new builds, and modern building services. New challenges for the surveyor to consider include the health and wellbeing of building occupants, the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 and schedules of condition, energy and building performance, and owner occupied and tenanted properties.

An essential book for students studying to enter the residential survey and valuation profession and for existing practitioners who wish to improve their knowledge of industry practices.

Phil Parnham is a Chartered Building Surveyor and was a director at BlueBox partners and has over 40 years' experience in the property sector. He spent his first ten years working in local government and for housing associations where he developed an interest in residential defects. He took up an academic post at Sheffield City Polytechnic (latterly Sheffield Hallam University) where he helped develop their building surveying course at all levels. He left academia and joined up with Chris Rispin in 2010 to form BlueBox partners where he jointly organised and delivered a range of training courses and other services for those working in the residential property sector. In September 2021, BlueBox partners was acquired by Sava and Phil set up his own training and development consultancy creatively named Phil Parnham Ltd. During this time Phil has also written a number of books, journal articles and conference papers. The most notable examples include: the RICS Survey Writer Sample Phrases for the RICS Condition and HomeBuyer Reports, The Surveyor's Guide to RICS Home Surveys, the Domestic Energy Assessor's Handbook, and Assessing Building Services (all for the RICS) and Residential Property Appraisal. In addition, he was the technical author for RICS's information paper on Japanese knotweed (first edition) and the RICS professional statement on the Home Survey Standard. Phil is aiming to retire in the near future but like many of those in the residential sector he is unlikely to achieve this goal. Although he has given up rushing around the conference and seminar circuit, he can often be found in his office in Sharrow, Sheffield engaging in what he calls 'deep thinking'. Larry Russen is a chartered building surveyor with over 40 years' practical experience in residential, industrial and commercial property. He is a chartered building engineer and party wall surveyor and established Russen & Turner Chartered Surveyors in King's Lynn in 1981. Over the last 20+ years, he has enjoyed training thousands of surveyors, engineers and energy assessors with RICS, Sava and BlueBox partners. His mantra for any surveyor, aspiring or practicing, is 'it's all about your attitude and attention to detail'.
