Church & Charitable Institution Valuations

Tuesday, May 7th, 2019

Valuations of churches and other buildings owned by charitable or not for profit organisations are just some of the specialist properties our Licensed Valuers undertake on a regular basis. Historically, churches were located in residential areas. They often included halls and a manse/rectory/parsonage/vicarage (house attached to the church) depending which religion the church was.

Retirement Village Valuers – Transferable Leasehold Valuations

Thursday, March 28th, 2019

A valuation of a Transferable Leasehold Interest of an Independent Living Unit (ILU) at a retirement village is different to valuing a standard home or strata titled unit. The Licensed Valuers at Garmony Property Consultants have been undertaking Transferable Leasehold Interest Valuations since the late 1980’s in the greater Perth Metropolitan Area, South West and Great Southern areas of Western Australia.
