Involved in a divorce? Brady Appraisal Services has the experience you're looking for.Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two alternatives when discussing the house - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should get an appraisal of the joint real estate.
An appraisal for the purpose of asset division should include a well-supported, authoritative appraisal document that can be supported in court. When you order an appraisal from Brady Appraisal Services, you are assured the best in service with courtesy and the highest quality appraisal. Taking into account the special needs of a divorce situation is not a problem for us.
Frederick County attorneys as well as accountants in Maryland depend on our appraisals when calculating real property values for estates, divorces, or other disputes requiring a value opinion. We understand their needs and are used to dealing with all parties involved. We provide appraisal documents that meet the requirements of the courts and various agencies.
For lawyers handling a divorce, your case's material facts customarily require an appraisal to determine market value for the residential real estate involved. Often the divorce date can be different from the date you requested the appraisal. We are familiar with the methods and what's requisite to do a retrospective appraisal that has an effective date and Market Value opinion that matches the date of divorce. We work on a reasonable number of divorce appraisals (unfortunately) and we understand that they need to be handled with the utmost care. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) compels us to keep the highest degree of confidentiality, resulting in the utmost discretion.
