Unfortunately, deceased estate and probate property valuations are the hardest type of property valuation we provide, not due to their difficulty but due to the sensitive needs of our clients. We understand a loved one has passed, and our approach is therefore sensitive. We suggest speaking with a lawyer before approaching property valuers in Brisbane as they will be best placed to advise you on the date of valuation. Often, if the property valuation is required for deceased estate purposes, we are required to provide a property valuation back at the date of death to calculate any capital gains tax the estate might be liable to pay. Unfortunately, as property valuers, we are not qualified to give this advice, you are best to speak with a suitably qualified professional, such as a solicitor or accountant.
Should you wish to speak with a property valuer in Brisbane or one of our friendly administration staff for a referral to a solicitor or an accountant, please do not hesitate to send us an email or call the office on (07) 3077 9695.
