Usually, settling an estate necessitates an irrefutable appraisal report to determine market value for the house to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We understand that when you lose a loved one, ordering an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, often there will be times that the effective date of an appraisal deviates from the time of death. Meade & Associates assures that our appraisers are accustomed to the procedures and requirements needed by revenue services to perform a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethical requirements listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our appraisers to confidentiality, providing the highest degree of discretion for you and your family.

All too often, people do not fully comprehend the necessity in having a full real estate appraisal prepared in support of the figures displayed in general documents filed with the IRS and Kentucky state agencies.

Opinions of value displayed in documents filed with the IRS and Kentucky agencies absolutely should be backed by a detailed report as to how the appraiser came to his conclusions. Such a report will clearly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are accurate and substantiated.

An executor will be satisfied by an appraisal report by Meade & Associates which will show him irrefutable facts and figures to work with the IRS and Kentucky state agencies' requirements. You need not worry over anything, because we will be there to stand by our work if they are ever refuted.
