- a letter of appraisal, commissioned by or for a financial institution for security purposes, providing the valuation is by a certified practising valuer who is a member of the API or by a member of the REIV with sworn valuer accreditation; the letter of appraisal or valuation should be:
- in the case of a related party transfer for full or fractional interest (without a contract or that is a gift) - within six months of the date of the transfer
- in the case of a sale under a contract between related parties - within six months of the date of the contract.
Note: Appraisals that do not state the valuer's qualifications will be rejected.
