The results

  • Complete strategic review of all easements along the length of the Immingham pipeline.
  • Established a working precedent for future negotiations
  • Realised a substantial boost to the Network Rail’s rental income.

The challenge

  • The valuation of easements is a specialist field as there are no RICS guidelines and valuation methodology is drawn largely from the compensation code and shared value or ransom considerations
  • The industry is highly sensitive and commercial confidentialities and competition means that information is hard to extract and negotiations are complex and lengthy
  • Rental incomes of easements have a tendency to remain static due to a lack of knowledge this specialist area.

What we did

  • Extensive research was undertaken to uncover comparable evidence
  • Various valuation methods were employed, including alternative route cost saving, share of value and diminution in land affected.
