What to look for in a valuer?


The valuer should provide you with a written or verbal scope of work prior to undertaking the inspection, which will detail the fee and estimated time frame for completion. We understand that your property means a huge amount to you. You should feel comfortable phoning or emailing your valuer to gain clarification. The report should detail the main aspects of the property in question such as location, zoning and construction. The evidence used within the report should relate back to the subject property so that the reasons for adjustments are easy to read and understand. Valuation is all about quality of information over quantity.
