If it's a property that will be rented out, it's an investment property. Initial recognition (i.e. at purchase date) will be at cost, then revalued to market value at each subsequent balance sheet date. Valuation can be by the Directors and does not need to be third-party.

Arrangement fees on any mortgage are set against the proceeds of the loan and amortised over the period of the loan.

Thanks but what do you mean by "set against the proceeds of the loan"

The debit for the amount of the arrangement fees goes against the mortgage creditor balance.
