Lawyers and accountants depend on our ethics when calculating real property values for estates, divorces, or other disputes requiring a value being determined for real property. We understand their needs and are accustomed to dealing with all parties involved. We supply appraisal reports that transcend the obligations of the legal system and different agencies.
Settling an estate most often depends on an appraisal to establish market value for the estate affected. It's understandable that ordering an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Due to this, sometimes the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is ordered. We are comfortable with the systems and requirements needed to produce a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethical obligations stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) keeps our appraisers to confidentiality, assuring the highest degree of discretion for you and your family.
Many times, people do not fully fathom the importance in having an exhaustive appraisal supplied in support of the figures used in general documents filed with revenue authorities.
An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is necessary to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. Such a report will definitely demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are well-founded and correct.
An executor will be overjoyed by a report by Hamaker Appraisal Services which will provide him undeniable facts and numbers to deal with revenue agencies' requirements. You need not worry over anything, because we will be there to stand by our work if they are ever refuted.
