Reach a successful property settlement with an independent

Frequently Asked Questions

Who appoints and pays for the property valuation?

In certain situations, both parties may choose to jointly appoint a Valuer to represent them throughout the settlement process. Alternatively, you may choose to independently appoint a Valuer to exclusively act on your behalf, and assist in preventing or resolving any potential disputes over value of assets.

When should I get a Family Law Valuation?

If a family law property circumstance arises for you (separation or divorce, deceased estate or family share divisions), a timely valuation can make all the difference. If you wish to retain (or purchase) the asset, keep in mind the price may rise quickly in today’s variable market. Find out where you stand sooner, rather than later.

Why not just get a free appraisal from a real estate agent or my bank?

We aren’t agents looking to gain your sale listing by estimating higher, and we aren’t lenders looking to sell you a loan by estimating lower. Completely impartial, with no conflict of interest or bias, we use a combination of global data and local knowledge to determine a fair market value for your asset.

How much does a Family Law Property Valuation cost?

Fees vary depending on the location and complexity of your property or portfolio.  We'll work with you to determine your needs and provide a customised quote for your approval.
