Some marriages break down. When they do, if there’s property involved the value of it will have to be agreed.
A valuation for matrimonial purposes aims to provide a Market Valuation, which can be used to decide how joint property assets are divided between parties involved in divorce proceedings. Shape Surveyors can carry out valuations for either party to make absolutely sure an impartial value is established through professional judgement. We understand that marriage break-up is difficult, when it happens, property valuation is one less thing to worry about.
Our surveyors are able to undertake these matrimonial valuations and provide reports compliant with Rule 35 of the CPR 1998. In most cases, we are jointly appointed by instructing solicitors (on behalf of each party) to provide an independent valuation report for the Courts. We are able to provide matrimonial valuation reports in respect of the matrimonial house and/or other shared residential, investment or commercial property.
