59Assessment of value of land

This section has no associated Nodiadau Esboniadol

(1)Ministers shall, within 7 days of the receipt of a confirmation, sought by them under section 49(2)(a) above, that a community body will exercise its right to buy the land, appoint a valuer, being a person who appears to Ministers to be suitably qualified, independent and to have knowledge and experience of valuing land of a kind which is similar to the land being bought, to assess the value of the land.

(2)The validity of anything done under this section is not affected by any failure by Ministers to comply with the time limit specified in subsection (1) above.

(3)In assessing the value of land in pursuance of an appointment under subsection (1) above, a valuer—

(a)does not act on behalf of the owner of the land or the community body which is exercising its right to buy the land; and

(b)shall act as an expert and not as an arbiter.

(4)The value to be assessed is the market value of the land—

(a)as at the date of notification under section 48(1) above which gave rise to the right to buy the land; or

(b)in a case where the community body’s interest was registered in pursuance of an application to which section 39 above applied, as at the date of Ministers' receipt of that application.

(5)Where the land the value of which is to be assessed includes salmon fishings or mineral rights, the value of those fishings or rights shall be separately assessed.

(6)The “market value” of land, for the purposes of subsection (4) above, is the aggregate of—

(a)the value it would have on the open market as between a seller and a buyer both of whom are, as respects the transaction, willing; and

(b)where a community body is exercising a right to buy which has arisen in relation to part only of the land in respect of which the owner has given notice under section 48(1) above that a transfer is proposed, the amount of any diminution in the value of the other part of that land which is attributable to the fact that part only of the land is being bought by the body.

(7)In assessing, for those purposes, the value which land would have in the circumstances mentioned in subsection (6)(a) above—

(a)account may be taken, insofar as a seller and a buyer of the land such as are mentioned in subsection (6) above would do so, of any factor attributable to the known existence of a person who (not being the community body which is exercising its right to buy the land) would be willing to buy the land at a price higher than other persons because of a characteristic of the land which relates peculiarly to that person’s interest in buying it;

(b)no account shall be taken of—

(i)the registration of an interest in or the exercise of a right to buy the land by a community body under this Part of this Act;

(ii)the absence of the period of time during which the land would, on the open market, be likely to be advertised and exposed for sale;

(iii)any depreciation in the value of any other land owned by the seller;

(iv)the expenses of the valuation or otherwise related to the sale and purchase of the land.

(8)Where the proposed transfer which gave rise to a community body’s right to buy land was conditional upon moveable property belonging to the owner of the land and used in connection with it being sold with the land, the appointment of the valuer shall be extended to include the valuation of that moveable property.

(9)In any case where that appointment is so extended the moveable property shall be valued separately from the land, individual items of moveable property shall be valued separately from each other and the provisions of this section relating to the assessment of the value of land shall, so far as appropriate, apply for the purposes of the valuation of the moveable property.

(10)The expense of a valuation under this section shall be met by Ministers.
