Observed, potential, or notified issues that the Valuer has become aware of, either on the subject property or arising from neighbouring properties, that may impact on the value or marketability of the subject property.
Any of these matters may warrant a report by appropriately qualified experts or a certificate from an appropriate authority. The Valuer is not normally an expert in these matters. The Valuer's role is to assist in identifying issues in the first instance and to recommend any further reports or certificates for confirmation or clarification. (Any issues or uncertainties should be explained more fully in 'Additional Comments').
Should any issues be subsequently confirmed, the Valuer should be asked for further comment in view of any certificates or `other experts' reports (and their estimated costs of remediation or recommended work). Where no cause for concern is identified the Valuer may comment "none readily apparent" or "unlikely in this area" or similar.
