We know how to handle the sensitive requirements of these situations. Mostly we are asked to determine the fair market value as of the current date, but in some cases the divorce date or separation date may differs from the date the appraisal is being ordered. We need to know date (Valuation Date) the lawyer, mediator and/or accountant may require in the valuation dated to, as every so often the divorce date or separation date differs from the date you order the appraisal (e.g. If the valuation date is based in the past these call called retrospective appraisal)
We are well versed with procedures and requirements necessary to perform Retrospective – Current – Prospective Appraisals with an effective date and fair market value estimate as required for the separation date. In some cases, at the date of marriage the house was pre-owned by one party and the value was not ascertained at that time.
We can also assist in determining the value for pre-nuptial agreements.
