Consistently achieving successful results for our clients
As RICS registered valuers with experience in negotiating in excess of 2000 lease extensions/leasehold enfranchisements for both tenants and landlords, we are extremely experienced in what is an incredibly niche and specialist area.
We pride ourselves on our expertise and ability to value and negotiate the best outcome for our clients. We maintain a rigorous training program to ensure we are always up to date with current legislation and case decisions so as to ensure our valuations and negotiation techniques deliver the best outcome for you.
We have an esteemed reputation in the industry and have worked for and against some of the largest freeholders/landlords in the country. This enables us to forecast and anticipate nearly every eventuality to ensure you the best possible result.
We also offer an Expert Witness service for those claims that proceed to a First Tier Tribunal, having years of experience in providing our clients with expert witness reports and representation at Tribunal hearings, thereby providing a full service from start to finish.
Meet the team
Professional yet approachable
Colin founded Hortons Valuers after becoming disillusioned with the valuation industry after hearing about clients being overcharged and underserved. Colin combines traditional valuation principles with modern and creative thinking, he specialises in both Lease Extensions and Enfranchisements and he regularly acts for both Landlords and Tenants ensuring he is always at the top of his game.
He is a firm believer that there is nothing more important than simply achieving the very best for your client, as without your clients you simply do not have a business.
He is an accomplished Expert Witness at the First Tier Property Tribunal and was recognised by his peers as being in the Top 100 Most Influential People in Leasehold Reform in the years 2016 and 2017. Colin is also the founder of The YLP (Young Leasehold Professionals) which is the largest networking group in the Leasehold property industry reform with over 300 professional members.

1% to Charity
It means a lot
At Hortons Valuers we believe in giving something back to the community, which is why we have pledged to give 1% to charity. We know charity is a personal thing for everyone, however we have chosen Young Minds who champion the wellbeing and mental health of children and young adults. The reason we chose this charity is that we are well aware of the struggles and pressures of everyday life that are placed on young people, and we want to help those who may be vulnerable and susceptible to anxiety and mental health issues. By giving 1% to them we hope that we can assist in transforming the lives of those children most in need.
