In these days of high divorce and separation rates, it is usually necessary for matrimonial houses or shared property to be valued to decide upon how the assets will be shared.
Many matrimonial valuations are, following “The Woolf” report, usually carried out by a qualified surveyor/valuer jointly appointed by both parties in the divorce with an independent valuation report provided for and to the court.
Valuations are also carried out for the benefit of single parties for negotiation purposes. The valuation will comply with Rule 35 of the CPR 1998 and can be used by the Courts if required.
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.
