Call for an expert valuation
If you need to buy or sell a property, you will need some expert help on your side. You want to get every aspect right and cannot afford to make any mistakes, so you should get in touch with an experienced organisation like McLennan Steege Smith. We’ve been involved in property valuation since 1999, servicing Randwick, Maroubra, Coogee, Kingsford, Kensington, Matraville, Clovelly and the surrounding suburbs. We are knowledgeable, friendly and await your call.
What We Do
Do you want to borrow funds against an existing property to cover a financial challenge of some kind? You may need to refinance to free up some funds, and if so, we can help you figure it out. We will accurately assess the value of your property so you have the right information.
An executor of an estate has a tough job. They will need to draw up the value of the estate using accurate information before they can distribute any of the assets. If a property is part of the estate, then you need to get it accurately appraised. If you need help with this, turn to us.
When you own several different properties from a commercial point of view, you will want the most accurate and timely financial information to help you manage your portfolio. Give us a call whether you are an investor or estate manager, and rely on our experience. We will help you to come up with trustworthy, verifiable and accurate records for your books.
Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of working with many leading organisations that choose us for fast and accurate valuations. These include Westpac, Bank of Melbourne, Bank of SA, Rams, and St George.
Stamp Duty Tax and Capital Gains Tax
Most people don’t want to pay taxes, but it’s often inevitable. You’ll nevertheless want to ensure that you pay the correct amount, and it’s very important to figure out any stamp duty or capital gains tax when buying or selling a property. We are familiar with the requirements at federal or state level and will work with conveyancers or solicitors to figure out the balance.
Presale or Prepurchase Valuations
You cannot put a property on the market if you don’t know what it is worth. As such, you need to get the building properly assessed before purchase or sale. We will do this for you and provide the necessary evidence to support it.
Partnership or Family Law Settlement
In the unfortunate event of divorce or separation, disputes can arise. If you’re going through this type of upset, you may need evidence to back up a claim. There is a reason why the Family Law Courts have trusted McLennan Steege Smith in this area over so many years. We are known for our ability to compile an unbiased and impartial report, which the court can use to help determine an outcome.
If a utility company or third party has a legal right to access your land, you’ll want to know the repercussions. An easement like this could very well affect your property value, and you will need to have the most accurate data. Our experts can take a look at the easement and give you an accurate assessment.
Disputes Over Rent
It’s not unusual for a tenant and landlord to disagree when it comes to the value of the rent. As a landlord, you might be trying to set a rent that is more indicative of average market conditions, and in this case, you will want an impartial point of view. We will give you the necessary information once we have looked into the property, its condition and location and compared to prevailing market data. Bear in mind that the Australian Property Institute of NSW trusts us to do this type of work during a court dispute.
Looking Back In Time
Sometimes, you may have to deal with questions related to a property that you have owned in the past. In this case, call us to assess its value. We will provide the information so you can settle issues like outstanding capital gains tax.
