MATRIMONIAL VALUATIONS / EXPERT WITNESS REPORTS
Although we prepare Expert Witness Reports for a variety of reasons the most common one is for divorce purposes.
An unbiased matrimonial valuation report is essential if divorcees can’t agree on the market value of their jointly owned real estate assets, usually their home, and sometimes a second home abroad. In these circumstances a valuation from a RICS registered valuer can help since it will provide an informed opinion of market value on which to arrive at an agreement. Furthermore, when the parties can’t agree, an expert witness report will be required by a judge to decide how to distribute the assets in accordance with the law.
We offer this service across all of the Spanish, Portuguese and Italian territories, including:
• Mainland Spain
• Balearic Islands
• Canary Islands
• Mainland Portugal
• The Azores
• Mainland Italy
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN OUR EXPERT WITNESS REPORTS?
Our reports follow the guidance of the Advanced Professional Award in Expert Witness Evidence (APAEWE) and include:
• Description of the property and its location
• Construction and floor areas
• Brief comment on apparent condition of the property
• Comment on marketability of the property
• General market comments
• Market Value
• Valuation rationale
• Internal and external photos
In most cases, the divorcees will jointly instruct us to provide them with an accurate property valuation. It is possible however for us to work for one party only, although we must remain impartial and cannot favour either of the parties.
