How Can Attorneys Use Real Estate Valuation Services?
Real estate valuations play a large role in the legal industry, but attorneys can often struggle to find licensed appraisers and valuation firms to value properties around the country. By using Akrivis, legal firms can eliminate time spent searching for valuation partners with one trusted vendor.
A third-party opinion of value for real estate can be valuable to attorneys by facilitating out-of-court settlements, resolving value disputes, and providing clarity on a real estate asset’s true value.
There are three main reasons why an attorney or firm would require an appraisal or valuation, including divorce settlements, estate settlements, and trust & probate settlements.
Perhaps one of the most common reasons an attorney would require an evaluation or appraisal is to help in a divorce settlement. Unfortunately, when two individuals file for divorce, a disagreement can arise about the value of the assets they are dividing. This is where Akrivis’ services come in.
Using one of our hybrid appraisals or evaluations, your firm can obtain the value and condition of the real estate asset in five business days or less. This quick turnaround time helps keep the legal process moving and ensures a quick resolution for all parties involved.
Before a person passes away, they often set up an estate administration through an attorney to ensure their debts are settled and assets are distributed to their loved ones. Akrivis’ estate settlement valuation services come in handy here through not only our normal services but also our ability to provide a retrospective (date of death) value.
Once the property is valued, the will determines how it will be divided among heirs and beneficiaries.
Probate is the court-supervised process for the orderly transfer of a decedent’s assets to those who are entitled to receive them. When real estate is involved, evaluations or appraisals may be necessary to understand the value of the decedent’s assets.
Akrivis can help ease the burden of this process by providing timely and accurate valuations. Our quick turnaround time and expertise help minimize confusion, disagreements, and added stress during what’s often already a difficult time for those involved.
