Article publication date: 1 January 1993


Considers that the relationship between a property′s trading potential and the tenant′s ability to pay rent is the basis of one of the five recognised methods of valuation: the profits (or accounts) method. Discusses the basic concept behind the methodology and investigates the circumstances under which surveyors currently use profits within their valuations. Concludes that more discussion between valuers and their clients on how they arrive at their valuations and the definitions of value that they use would be beneficial.
