Independent Market Value assessments when relationships end
The importance of Independence
If one person is keeping matrimonial property, someone else is losing it. Gaining an Independent assessment of the Market Value provides certainty and fairness.
Matrimonial Valuation reports must comply with regulatory guidance called the RICS Red Book. This means that regardless of who appoints us, our reports must provide an Independent assessment. Neither party is able to influence our opinion of Market Value, other than through the provision of facts required for an assessment. Regardless of who instructs us and who is paying our fee, our assessments are completely Independent and impartial.
Whilst normally Matrimonial type valuation reports are provided for married couples, they can be provided for anybody who needs to divide assets. We can be appointed by the individuals, by couples or by the courts.
At Websters our Chartered Surveyors (who are also RICS registered valuers) have the necessary knowledge and expertise to carry out surveys across London and the South East.
We endeavour to provide valuation advice in compliance with the RICS Valuation – Global Standards, also referred to as the RICS ‘Red Book’. This document sets out the gold standard for undertaking valuations through a quality assured process, so you can have confidence that consistency, objectivity, transparency and a high standard of service is maintained.
