Legal & Litigation Valuations
Thirty years in partnership with leading law firms ensures Leeson Valuers provides high quality valuation advice and property guidance for legal disputes.
Leeson Valuers are experienced and trusted in the court room and have a thorough understanding of the obligations of the Expert Witness, and the mediation, conference, tribunals and court hearing procedures.
Property values impact on our lives. They start at Council rates and range to their impacts on pensions, land tax, your ability to borrow money, your ability to buy more property, the compensation you receive when a Council or the Government resume part of your land or puts an Easement over your land.
Sometimes other Government Valuers make determinations that you can contest or object to. In fact if your land is to be resumed, the "Government" is to pay your valuer's (reasonable) costs.
Contesting a valuation at a tribunal or court or simply making an objection or making a submission needs a valuer who is "switched on" in terms of valuation methodology, but also in terms of negotiating strengths, legislation awareness, familiarity with giving expert evidence in a court and with strong communication skills. Leeson Valuers has wide ranging experience and expertise in these areas.
