Legal & Litigation Valuation

Four decades in partnership with leading Australian Law Firms ensures Charter provides high quality valuation advice and property guidance for legal disputes.

Charter Valuers are experienced and trusted in the court room and have a thorough understanding of the obligations of the Expert Witness, and the mediation, conference, tribunals and court hearing procedures.

Charter’s diverse range of specialized valuation services means we can provide experienced Valuers to be engaged in an expert witness capacity for a broad range of disputes.

Experts are available to facilitate valuations for all matrimonial (relationship) property disputes and we are prepared to facilitate conferences where valuations are contested, attending mediations as necessary.


Additionally, Charter provides advice to a wide range of owners/claimants and acquiring authorities for freeway and road widening purposes that include CityLink, Eastlink, East West Link and various bypass roads throughout Victoria and Tasmania as well as the acquisition of easements for water and gas pipelines and electricity transmission lines.

We endeavour to accommodate short lead times and where deemed appropriate, we will work through an ascending process of initial brief form reports and conferences to avoid the higher costs of more formal reports and full litigation, thus achieving a sensible, practical and commercial approach.
