Trusted and unbiased property valuation is critical for people at all stages of divorce or separation. McSS is a preferred valuation firm for the Family Law Court of Australia, providing short-form and comprehensive reports in accordance with expert witness rules and legal guidelines.
Pre-sale or pre-purchase valuations
Buyers and sellers need to determine the value of a property prior to sale. We offer expert valuations based on market evidence and technical assessment. Our honest and independent approach is based on expert advice, which takes all of the confusion out of your property purchase decisions.
Rental determinations are often needed when a lease ends or a dispute occurs between a landlord and tenant. From commercial and industrial properties through to childcare centres, our valuers undertake a detailed inspection of each property and offer expert rental advice.
Whether it’s a utility easement, a private easement, or an easement by necessity, our qualified valuers can provide trusted and independent advice about the effects of an easement on property values. For example, unsightly power lines or right-of-way access can affect property values.
Retrospective property valuations
A retrospective property valuation is often required for capital gains tax purposes, with some family law and estate cases also needing historical valuations. These valuations are especially important for investment properties that were acquired after 20 September 1985.
McSS provides a full range of property valuation services. We offer accurate and detailed property assessments and reports for all kinds of properties, with childcare centres and other properties often requiring specialist advice.
SMSF property valuation

Insurance, strata and private
Residential strata insurance covers common property under the management of a strata title or body corporate. We offer peace of mind to our customers by helping them to avoid under-insuring and determining the correct amount of strata insurance that is needed depending on the property type.
A probate valuation from McSS can be used to ensure that property is sold or exchanged in a fair and timely manner. Probate property settlements and deceased estates need to be handled with care and sensitivity. Our independent property appraisals and accurate reports help beneficiaries, lawyers, and accountants.
When property is used in a bail application, it’s important to demonstrate that the property involved has relevant equity after accounting for mortgages and other debts. In these situations, it’s essential to conduct a valuation as quickly as possible. We have the expertise to produce accurate and timely reports and ensure appropriate documentation throughout the bail process.
Land acquisition of resumption
Government entities and private enterprises sometimes acquire land for development, with an independent valuation needed to ensure fair negotiations. We offer professional advice about compulsory acquisition and understand how to determine property valuation and compensation amounts.
“Five Stars – Excellent and efficient service I recently engaged McLennan Steege Smith Property Valuers for a valuation for Stamp Duty purposes. Their staff were friendly and efficient and the Valuers knowledgeable and I was kept informed throughout the whole process. After ringing around other valuation companies, I found their fees to be competitive. I would highly recommend McLennan Steege Smith Property Valuers and if I require a further valuation to be undertaken in the future, I would definitely be a returning client. Well done !”
