At Opteon we have a specialist team who undertake forensic and retrospective valuations for a variety of purposes and property types
Our specialist team undertake forensic valuations, also known as retrospective valuations, upon receipt of instructions from professional services clients. Professional services providers include insolvency practitioners, administrators, auditors, accountants, accounting professionals, private investigators and Family Law or legal advisors.
You may be required to obtain a forensic valuation for a land or property dispute. A forensic valuation report is often supported by an expert witness testimony, and Opteon’s expert valuation team can provide this type of advice for any client. A retrospective valuation is a backdated valuation based on a previous point in history.
Opteon’s forensic valuation specialists examine past property transactions and determine market factors that may have been present at any historic point in time. Only our most experienced valuers undertake instructions of this kind and our advice is individually tailored to the requirements of our clients in simple reporting formats.
One of the most common reasons a forensic or retrospective valuation might be required is for Capital Gains Tax for investment properties that were acquired after 20 September 1985.
