When are property valuations needed for Family Law Court?

There are a few situations where a property valuation will be necessary to present to Family Law Court. In a court setting, a property valuation report is used to determine the accurate current market value to assist with settlement disputes. These can include disputes such as:

  • Deceased estate
  • Separation or divorce
  • Internal/related party share buy-out

Alongside the property valuation report, our valuers can also appear as a single expert witness to further assist in the fair division of property.

Who can provide property valuations for Family Law Court?

Property valuation reports submitted to the Family Law Courts have to adhere to certain requirements. Our property valuation reports contain the inclusion of any required statutory statements and any other criteria to meet judicial standards. As such, we provide our clients with an extensive analysis of the property and the local market in the form of a long form report.

In addition to this, for a report to be accepted by the court, it must be provided and signed off by a certified property valuer. All our valuers at Perth Property Valuers are qualified and registered with the Australian Property Institute (API) and uphold the highest level of industry standards.

What is included in a long form property valuation report?

A long form report is an expanded version of a standard, or short form, valuation report. Although each report varies according to the property type and complexity, a long form valuation report is typically around 25 – 30 pages long.

In addition to the standard inclusions, a long form property valuation report will contain information specifically for use in Family Law Court. This includes an in-depth market analysis, a breakdown of the property valuer’s credentials and work experience, to show they are qualified to act as an expert witness.
