We are there when you need it
The appraisers at West Central Property Services are experienced in defending their work and acting as an expert witness, providing not only testimony but also guidance, litigation support and review appraisals.
There may be situations where an appraiser is required to defend their work at a hearing or in a court setting. Being an appraisal expert witness requires significant training, experience, and skill. As a part of litigation support, an appraiser can conduct an appraisal review to assist legal representation with the evaluation of documents to prepare for a case.
In most cases, lawyers are unfamiliar with appraisal reports and therefore need professional assistance. Further, appraisers are often called upon in court and arbitrations for property tax assessment hearings, to testify regarding appraisal standards and methodology, etc.
