Form Reports

All Form reports are completed in accordance with Canadian Uniform Standards of Appraisal Practice (CUSPAP) and the Code of Ethics and Regulations of the Appraisal Institute of Canada.  A typical form report will contain 12 pages.

Income Producing Properties

The appraiser does not audit the current and historic income and expense information at a Subject Property.  Usually the report makes the assumption the information provided is accurate.  Information provided is compared with information from other similar properties and comment made on the difference between the Subject Property and the “normal” market figures.

Required income information includes current rent roll, name and occupancy date of tenants, history of vacancy at the Subject Property, copy of lease or tenant acknowledgments.

Required expense information includes current year annual insurance premium, current year total property taxes,  3 to 4 years of records detailing utility costs, garbage removal, site maintenance, building maintenance and a summary of costs of capital improvements completed at the Subject Property.

Residential Properties

Income and expense information is not required for single family residential properties. The inspection at the  Subject Property provides a majority of the details required to complete the appraisal.  It is important for the client to provide information detailing the date and amount of the capital expenditure for  any capital improvements completed inside and out side the home.
