CLEAR AND DETAILED REPORTING

REPORTS WRITTEN TO BE READ AND UNDERSTOOD

Simple and easy to understand

Reports have been designed for the non-technical reader and written in plain English language. They will provide the reader with a detailed description of the property and a walk-through of the valuation process, leading to the concluded market valuation figure.

We use clear charts and images to illustrate key information such as pricing and market trends.

All the detail you need

Our comprehensive reports display all the information needed in a clear and logical format.

GET THE MOST ACCURATE MARKET VALUATION

MARKET (MORTGAGE) VALUATION

Take some of the stress out of buying a home, with a fast and accurate valuation.

You may need a market valuation for:
  • Pre-purchase and pre-sale
  • Mortgage or refinancing
  • Estates and trusts valuations
  • Matrimonial property settlement
  • Unit title assessments
  • Taxation-related valuations
  • Asset register
When you need it

Our usual turnaround is 5- 10 working days. We will work with you to get your valuation to the right person at the right time. If you need an urgent valuation we can usually accommodate your needs.

Quality Assurance accredited mortgage valuations 

All major lenders will accept a valuation from a Quality Assurance accredited valuer. Valuations are valid for up to six months, so you can reduce the stress and choose your own valuer by instructing us  in advance.

Revaluations

As your circumstances change over the years, you may need a revaluation of your property. Once we have done an initial assessment, the revaluations can be much less time consuming and therefore cheaper.

PROTECT YOUR HOME BY
ACCURATELY INSURING IT

When disaster strikes, the last thing you want is to join the insurance lottery. 

REINSTATEMENT ESTIMATE

Online valuation calculators can vary dramatically (up to 30%). This exposes you to paying too much on your premium or being left well short when disaster strikes. Mitigate your risk by getting an accurate insurance valuation report from Duke and Cooke.

What is included in the Insurance valuation?

An insurance report provides your insurers with the required figures for determining your property's total Sum Insured, which determines your premium. It is a combination of the following components.

Reinstatement estimate
+
Demolition
+
Inflation
=
Sum Insured
Reinstatement estimate

The cost to rebuild a Building Act compliant structure, in current equivalent material, which includes allowances for design and consent fees.

Demolition

The cost of site clearance in the event of a loss.

Inflation

The anticipated amount by which the reinstatement and indemnity amounts may increase during the period of insurance and any additional time required to rebuild.

Revaluations

As your property changes over the years, it is important to keep the valuation up to date. We offer a revaluation service on the same property, once we have done an initial assessment. Revaluations are much less time consuming and therefore cheaper. Keep your insurance policy up to date and save money on future valuations.

ETHICAL AND RIGOROUS VALUATION PROCESS

OUR VALUATION PROCESS EXPLAINED

Define the scope of works

We create a Scope of Work to:

  • Define purpose and extent of the valuation
  • Confirm to whom we will be reporting
  • Provide and estimate cost
  • Explain the mutual obligations of the valuer and client
  • Detail our Terms of Trade
Background research

Before we inspect the property, we research property information such as rating valuation, title, encumbrance, and local authority resume management needs

Physical inspection

We will arrange a time to visit the property for a physical inspection. This normally takes up to one hour. We measure the whole property and inspect the construction and condition. We also review the local features, such as school shops and recreational amenities.

Market research

Following the inspection, we compare the property to recent sales and others on the market.

Valuation process

After all of the information has been collected, we then value the property for its current value/rental value as outlined in the Scope of Works.

Reporting

We pride ourselves on having the most comprehensive reporting in the Nelson/Tasman region. The documents clearly convey relevant values, methodology used and reasoning behind our valuation process.

Delivery

The report is then delivered via email (.pdf) followed by a hard copy (if required). We also deliver the report to any relevant parties outlined in the Scope of Works.
