At Melbourne Property Valuers Metro, we understand the delicate nature of dealing with a deceased estate. Whether you are dividing assets for a deceased estate or going through Probate, finding an independent valuation company that you can rely on and trust is important for a hassle free process. Our expert team of senior property valuers are dedicated to ensuring all our clients receive the best service that we can offer and to alleviate any unnecessary stress.
After a person has passed away, their estate needs to be accurately valued to ensure the correct and fair division of assets for the beneficiaries. Securing an independent property valuation is essential to maintain transparency and to reach to a fair assessment of the properties within the estate. An independent property valuation will provide an accurate and transparent current market value of the property in relation to the market. An independent valuation report does not rely on any kind of bias during the research and preparation of the report. With that being said, our independent valuation reports rely on objective data and extensive market analysis to determine an accurate value. A few examples of what our reports entail include:
- Local comparable sales
- Environmental factors/risks factors of the local surrounding areas
- Building and Property Summary
- Zoning information
- Information in regard to land and surrounding area variables
- Any information that may affect the property market
Using these variables, our expert team of senior property valuers are able to reach an accurate value of the property to assist in the correct division of assets for the beneficiaries of the estate. We always understand that sometimes a valuation from the ‘Date of Death’ is required for Probate purposes. In addition to providing a current market value of the property, we can also provide a retrospective valuation for a specified date if needed.
While any assets and property will either be distributed among the beneficiaries or to a trustee and held in trust, the implications of a deceased estate can be complex. For more information about deceased estates in accordance with Victoria’s laws visit Victoria’s State Revenue Office to see how this might affect you.
