Divorce AppraisalsWe know that divorce can be very difficult. There are countless issues that have to be finalized, including the fate of the house.
There are generally two alternatives when it comes to the house - it can be sold and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to get an appraisal of the shared real estate.
Attorneys as well as accountants in Puerto Rico depend on our appraisals when ascertaining real property values for estates, divorces, or other disputes where it is in question. We have a great deal of expertise working with everyone involved and are standing by to assist your needs. We provide appraisal documents for courts or various agencies that meet or exceed their requirements.
As a legal professional handling a divorce, your case's material facts customarily require an appraisal to determine market value for the residential real estate involved. A great deal of the time the divorce date can be different from the date you purchased the appraisal. We're accustomed to the methods and requirements needed to complete a retrospective appraisal that has an effective date and Market Value conclusion matching the date of divorce. For each divorce appraisal we are hired to do, we understand that they need to be handled with the utmost care. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, resulting in the utmost discretion.
