An independent property valuation is a comprehensive legal report provided by a qualified, independent licensed valuer recognised by the court of law. The report determines a property’s market or rental value for lawful purposes like refinancing, mortgage, capital gains tax, and other specialised valuation requirements.

What do property valuers include in a property valuation report?
The content will vary depending on the property type and purpose, however, generally, a full property valuation report prepared by a licensed property valuer will include detailed legal and physical descriptions of the property, such as description of land and improvements, council zoning restrictions, fixtures and features and ancillary improvements. An extensive analysis of variables that contribute to the market value of the property will be carried out as part of the valuation including recent comparable sales, market evidence and overall market conditions.

Bank valuations are done as part of working out an amount of money to loan to ensure the home loan does not exceed a property’s value. This is because the property is used as security for the loan. If the borrower defaults on payments, the lender has the right to take possession and dispose of the property to recover the outstanding mortgage.

The main difference is that a property appraisal conducted by a real estate agent has no legal basis and will not stand in a legal court in Queensland. Property appraisals can be targeted towards a marketing strategy to list the property for sale. On the other hand, property valuations completed by an independent licensed valuer hold no conflict of interest and can be used to resolve legal disputes in court.

Our team of property valuers located in Queensland, use our internal systems, skills and experience to meet client requirements. We ensure due diligence is taken at every step of the process throughout a property valuation. From obtaining written agreement from our clients, undertaking a formal inspection of the property (where required), researching and analysing relevant property information and finally generating a detailed report providing rationale as to the value of the property.

PRP has some 36 offices across Australia & New Zealand. Our Regional North Queensland Office provides property valuation services covering all regional areas throughout Northern Queensland and North Western Queensland including Boulia and Cloncurry. We also service into the Northern Territory throughout the Barkly Tablelands.
