    This paper is a study of the valuation methods and guidance available to professional valuers within the industry with regards to Historic Buildings, examining complications that arise from less commonly used methods and how they are implemented.

    The existing literature was reviewed to understand what common issues arise from the valuation methods today. The research concentrated on the competence of the guidance of a select few of the methods available. These methods were subsequently compared to the more common methods of valuation available, studying their ease of application to historic buildings, creating an understanding of what issues become apparent when trying to value these properties.

    Primary research was conducted by multiple face-to-face interviews, with the support of a case study; The Monastery of St. Francis and Gorton. The case study represented the difficulties faced by a valuer when trying to apply a select method to placing a valuation on a Grade II* listed building.

    The paper finally displays the collected data, analysing it and forming a set of recommendations that are presented in the final conclusions chapter. These suggest where the guidance is lacking in comprehensiveness, expressing the need for improvement and presenting other issues that have become apparent through this study.
