Generally, settling an estate requires an accurate appraisal report to establish market value for the property to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We empathize that when you lose a loved one, acquiring an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. So, it's possible the time an appraisal is needed will not match the date of death. Residential Valuation Services Inc. assures that our appraisers are familiar with the procedures and requirements requested by the federal and Alberta revenue agencies to supply a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our appraisers to confidentiality, ensuring the fullest degree of discretion for you and your family.

Most people don't realize that the Revenue Canada needs documents filed to support the value estimates involved in estate sales.

An exhaustive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is required to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. Such a report will clearly demonstrate to the government agencies that the value estimates used are accurate and substantiated.

Having a professional appraisal from Residential Valuation Services Inc. gives the executor definite facts and figures to work with in going beyond government and beneficiaries requirements. You need not be concerned over anything, because Residential Valuation Services Inc. will be there to stand by our work if they are ever refuted.
