A valuation of a real estate asset such as a residential apartment takes into account typical characteristics like size, layout, specification, condition, views. Depending on the property type, the characteristics will differ, however generally speaking a real estate valuation typically excludes furniture, plant & machinery.
A bank typically requests an independent third party to carry out a valuation for real estate assets, to provide expert and impartial advice. This is a form of risk analysis for banks to check if the amount to be borrowed aligns with the banks’ policies and risk appetite. The timeline for the valuation/appraisal process varies by property type and bank, but generally, for a typical residential property, the expected timeline is around 3 working days. The valuation firm will contact you to arrange the inspection and then the report is completed and sent to the bank directly.
It is important to check if the valuation company is compliant with certain standards. Asking questions before can avoid headaches and time wasted. Check if the company is RICS Registered and/or do they have any RICS members within the company? Also, is the company compliant with the local jurisdiction standards? If you feel that the property is not valued correctly, then it's worth doing your own research on the local market, finding evidence from quality data platforms and speaking to reputable agents in that community. If you still feel the same way then you can query the valuation by emailing the lender (bank) highlighting the reasons. It is important to separate heart from head in this scenario as purchasing or selling property can be sentimental.
Data availability is key to providing a high-quality valuation service. Globally there is different data platforms and sources. Typically a good valuation firm will use a variety of data sources including land department data, internal/external databases and speaking to reputable brokers. You can enquire with the surveyor as different companies may use different sources of evidence.
You may be asked if all the property is able to be inspected, are there any modifications to the property, the occupancy status, property type etc. A good rule for health reasons is to open all the doors so the surveyor does not have to touch any surfaces. You should have already provided the relevant documents.
