Involved in a divorce? Ascend Valuation Services, LLC has the experience you need.We realize that divorce can be very difficult. There are many decisions that have to be settled, including what to do with the house. There are generally two choices when discussing the shared residence - it can be sold and the proceeds split, 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 residence.
An appraisal for divorce purposes requires a well-supported, expert report that will hold up in court. When you order an appraisal from Ascend Valuation Services, LLC, you are assured the best in service with courtesy and the highest quality appraisal. We understand how to provide for the prickly needs of a divorce situation.
Iowa attorneys and accountants rely on our appraisals when ascertaining what real property is worth for estates, divorces, or other disputes where it is relevant. We understand their needs and are used to dealing with all parties involved. We create appraisal documents for courts or various agencies that meet or exceed their requirements.
For lawyers working with a divorce, your case's material facts customarily require an appraisal to establish market value for the residential real estate involved. A great deal of the time the divorce date differs from the date you ordered the appraisal. We're comfortable with the processes and what's necessary to perform a retrospective appraisal that has an effective date and Market Value opinion matching the date of divorce. For each divorce appraisal we perform, we keep in mind that they need to be handled delicately. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, guaranteeing you the utmost discretion.
