RESTRICTED ASSESSMENT – GENERAL

81.

The resultant fi gure is an indicative estimate only and may vary signifi cantly upon internal inspection for any one of a number of reasons. The Assessment/ Indicative Estimate is not and should not be construed to be a full and formal market valuation. It should not be relied upon as a formal valuation for any dealings with the property including sale, purchase, mortgage or loan fund advance. We recommend that a full and detailed valuation be undertaken including an internal inspection prior to any dealings with the property. We will not assume any negligence or liability for the Client’s reliance on the Restricted Assessment/ Indicative Estimate herein.

RESTRICTED ASSESSMENT – COMPANY TAKEOVER

82. That where this Valuation or the Valuation Services are provided for the purposes of or in relation to a takeover or proposed takeover of a company or fi rm, unless otherwise stated, no inspection of any property referred to has taken place other than an inspection of the exterior of such property from the nearest public road based on Your instructions. The resultant fi gure is an indicative estimate only and may vary signifi cantly upon internal inspection for any one of a number of reasons. The Assessment/ Indicative Estimate is not and should not be construed to be a full and formal market valuation. It should not be relied upon as a formal valuation for any dealings with the property including sale, purchase, mortgage or loan fund advance. We recommend that a full and detailed valuation be undertaken including an internal inspection prior to any dealings with the property. We will not assume any negligence or liability for the Client’s reliance on the Restricted Assessment/ Indicative Estimate herein.

RESTRICTED ACCESS ASSESSMENT – RESIDENTIAL

83. That this Restricted Access Assessment has been prepared in accordance with the Australian Property Institute’s Supporting Memorandum for Residential Valuations within Professional Practice June 2008. It has been conducted by way of external inspection from the street only, as specifi cally instructed by the Client. The resultant fi gure is an indicative estimate only and may vary signifi cantly upon internal inspection for any one of a number of reasons. The Assessment/ Indicative Estimate is not and should not be construed to be a full and formal market Valuation. It should not be relied upon as a formal Valuation for any dealings with the property including sale, purchase, mortgage or loan fund advance. We recommend that a full and detailed valuation be undertaken including an internal inspection prior to any dealings with the property. We will not assume any negligence or liability for the Client’s reliance on the Restricted Assessment/ Indicative Estimate herein.

DISCOUNTED CASHFLOW

84. That where We have forecast cash fl ows, future rental rates, expense costs, development costs, end project sale values and property values, will be determined by market forces. The fi gures and projections used in Our analysis and valuation are not a representation of a known or guaranteed future condition. Should the assumptions that We have made as to timing, cash infl ows and cash outfl ows prove to be incorrect We reserve the right to reconsider our fi ndings herein.

MARKET TRANSACTION EVIDENCE

85. That the sales or leasing evidence which We have utilised has been obtained from reliable sources including RP Data (Sales data produced from the NSW Land Titles Offi ce and Valuer General’s Department), and the Commercial Property Monitor. We have also, where possible, had discussions with Estate Agents to undertake a process of verifi cation of the data. Should it be revealed that any of the sales or leasing information stated herein, upon which We have relied, is incorrect or misleading, We reserve the right to reconsider our opinion of Market Value as determined herein.

86. That where sales data has been obtained from the RP Data/ Land Titles Offi ce and Valuer General’s database, We have considered it to be the most current sales data available. However sales which have occurred during the course of the last three months or sales which have been the subject of deferred settlement terms may not necessarily appear immediately on the Land Titles Offi ce records. Accordingly with this type of transaction, We rely on separate enquiries to attempt to obtain all available sales data.

87. That it is noted that We have relied on sales data information services as being a true and correct refl ection of the terms of any sale considered at arm’s length. We have not sighted copies of transfer notices, nor have we sighted copies of contract documents between the vendor and purchaser which may reveal matters that affect the sale price and necessitate adjustment to apply to the subject property. In the event that contract documents reveal matters that necessitate adjustment of the sales evidence We reserve the right to reconsider our valuation herein.

88. That in most instances it has not been possible for us to inspect sale and lease evidence properties internally, however they have been externally inspected for purposes of carrying out our valuation.

89. That where there is a paucity of directly comparable sales and leasing evidence in a locality, it is necessary for us to either consider other comparable localities and/or to consider sales and leasing evidence which is dated in the immediate area to gain an understanding of the historical sales and leasing value base for the area.

90. That in analysing the sales and/or leasing evidence referred to herein, it is noted that we have attempted to ascertain whether or not the sale price/rental is inclusive or exclusive of the Goods and Services Tax (GST). Apropos sales evidence, it is emphasised that the New South Wales Land Titles Offi ce does not currently differentiate between or record whether or not the sale price is inclusive or exclusive of GST. Where we have not been able to verify whether or not GST is included in the sale price, we have assumed that the Land Titles Offi ce record sale prices exclusive of GST. Should this not be the case for any particular sale used as evidence, we reserve the right to reconsider our valuation.

91. That in relation to the sales evidence, Contracts of Sale, Special Conditions within Contracts and Side Agreements have not been sighted. We reserve the right to reconsider the Valuation should these documents indicate any matters that materially affect our valuation.

RISK ASSESSMENT MATRIX

92. That the Risk Analysis provided within Our report has been prepared based on information available to Us at the date of preparation of this report. Accordingly, We will not be held responsible, liable or negligent for any unforeseen future market downturns.

93. That the risk ratings in Our Valuation or Valuation Services Reports are provided as a guide to alert the reader of the report to issues which impact the value of the property. Each risk rating and feature should be considered in the context of the comments, terms and conditions contained within the report. We have, in some instances, estimated risk ratings based on matters identified at the time of inspection or upon review of documentation available. Should there be matters that impact upon the valuation and risk rating assessment herein that we are not aware of, we reserve the right to reconsider the risk ratings and valuation herein. Where the risk rating may be seen by You to contradict any comment or statement in Our report, to avoid any doubt, the comments and statements in Our report prevail.

PROGRESS CLAIM

94. That in undertaking the progress inspection for the loan draw down purposes We emphasise that We have not supervised the work on a day to day basis. We have merely inspected the property on the date in the report. Furthermore, we have assumed that all work is carried out in accordance with the approved plans and specifications, the Local Government Act 1993 and the Building Code of Australia in a good and workmanlike manner.

96. That We have relied on information supplied by the NSW Office of State Revenue or the relevant Local Authority. If this information proves to be incorrect We reserve the right to reconsider our valuation herein.

97. That Our insurance Replacement Cost estimate has been prepared on the assumption that Our insurance valuation includes:-

(a) demolition and removal of debris;

(b) physical replacement;

(c) a contingency; and

(d) fees; only.

No allowance has been included for escalation during a town planning application period or rebuilding period or for loss of rental during any re-building period which, if included, by definition, is an opinion of Insurance Reinstatement Value.

98. That Our insurance replacement cost estimate has been prepared on the basis of current values with no allowance being made for escalation during the ensuing twelve month period. Further, We have not made allowance for escalation for any planning, application or extended re-building period. To deal with the problem of escalating costs during the ensuing 12 months and any extended re-building period; We suggest that you discuss an appropriate escalation clause with your insurance broker. However it excludes any fi tout or further fi tting or equipment.

99. That Our insurance replacement cost estimate has been prepared on the assumption that the insurance assessment is prepared on the basis of replacement. Such assessment includes fixtures and fi ttings and such other items normally considered to form part of the building;

100. That Our insurance replacement cost estimate has been prepared on the assumption that the requirements of The Building Code of Australia, Local Government Act 1993 and the Board of Fire Commissioners are taken into account as is, in Our experience, appropriate.

101. That Our insurance replacement cost estimate has been prepared on the assumption that the improvements may be reconstructed without any undue delays for planning and development approvals/ consents. To deal with the problem of potential planning or development consent delays We suggest that you discuss an appropriate policy clause with your insurance broker.

INSURANCE REPLACEMENT COST – NON-RESIDENTIAL

102. That Our Insurance Reinstatement Cost estimate includes:- a) Demolition and removal of debris; b) Physical replacement cost (which we have considered on a rate per square metre basis from the Rawlinson’s Australian Construction Cost Handbook); c) A contingency; d) Fees; e) An estimated time allowance for planning and development application and approvals;

f) An estimated time allowance for a re-building period;

g) An estimated time allowance for a re-letting period beyond the re-building period (relative to an assessment of loss of rental time allowance where an investment property as opposed an owner occupied property); and

h) An allowance for annual growth in costs (inflation) relative to the above time periods which we have considered from the historic price indices in Rawlinson’s Australian Construction Handbook and CPI Inflation forecasts where available.

103. Should Our estimates of time allowances for planning development approvals, re-building periods, re-letting periods or Our estimates of cost/cost growth/inflation prove to be incorrect we reserve the right to reconsider same.

104. We have included the above items in Our assessment of Insurance Reinstatement Cost which We understand typically are included in the Industrial Special Risks (IRS) Mark 5 policy wording. You should check your policy wording to confirm that these items are inclusions in Your insurance cover. In the event that they are not inclusions or that other items need to be added to or included You should contact us to revise the estimate so that it aligns with Your ISR policy wording.

105. We also note that Our estimate of Insurance Reinstatement Cost excludes any allowances for site or building contamination clean-up costs. Where land is contaminated the clean-up of the land following an insurance event that leads to a redevelopment application may protract timing allowances for planning and development approvals, demolition and removal of debris and the overall reconstruction period it may also add to rebuilding costs. In the event that any unforeseen contamination cleanup leads to an additional time allowance for re-building as a result of contamination clean-up or any additional costs are to be included we reserve the right to reconsider our Insurance Reinstatement Assessment herein.

106. That Our insurance Replacement and/or Reinstatement cost estimate is based on a building cost estimate prepared on a rate per square metre basis wherein we have relied on composite construction cost rates from the most recent edition of the Rawlinsons Construction Cost Guide. Our estimate is not based on elemental construction cost guides that would normally be prepared by a cost planner or quality surveyors.

TENANT VIABILITY

107. That in preparing our valuation we have assumed that the tenant/all tenants business(es) will remain economically viable and that the tenant(s) will continue to meet their rental obligations under the lease. Should this not be the case, we reserve the right to reconsider our valuation herein. Where rent reviews have been overlooked we have assumed that they may be implemented.
