Independent valuation of real estate in Russia is a sequence of actions, regulated by the Russian federal law 135FZ "On appraisal activities in
Russian Federation" and federal valuation standards, carried out by an independent certified appraiser to determine the value of the subject property.
Speaking about the valuation of real estate, we always mean determining the value of a certain bundle of rights which constitutes title of the subject property.
In relation to property, whether it is a land plot, building, premise or structure, there are three most commonly encountered bundles of rights:
This is the most common type of property title, when the title holder has outright ownership of the subject property and this ownership is not limited in time.
In this case the value of the subject property is equal to the value of the full rights of ownership in relation to this property.
Leasehold is a form of real estate tenure and is usually obtained by the tenant upon conclusion of a lease. Unlike freehold, leasehold is limited in time – tenant obtains
rights to possess and to use the property only for a limited period of time (lease duration). In Russia leasehold estate can be freely bought and sold on the open market.
3. Mixed leasehold and freehold.
This form of mixed real estate title is probably unique to Russia, but here we have many real estates (especially in big cities) where building in freehold sits on a leased land plot.
In this case, if the building is sold, the lessor is legally obliged to lease the land to the new owner of the building, under the same conditions.
As long as the building stands, the land owner cannot deny the building owner to lease the land plot under the building, however the lessor he has the right to adjust the land
lease rate according to market conditions.
Sometimes subject property may have limitations in use or may be encumbered with the rights of third parties.
Examples of such encumbrances are collateral, compulsory lease or duty to give the right of passage through the property, established by law.
The presence of an encumbrance usually reduces the market value of the subject property.
