Secure your biggest asset with expert insurance valuations from Hamilton's independent valuers
An insurance valuation differs from a market valuation for a residential property as it's based on the property's repair or rebuilding costs and excludes the value of the land. In the case of an unexpected loss or damage, the insurance company will rely on this valuation to determine an appropriate compensation amount.
Our team has extensive knowledge of New Zealand's construction market, which enables us to provide reliable and independent property valuation services, leaving no room for miscalculations. We rely on the latest construction industry pricing forecasts to provide precise replacement values for building materials. We also understand the importance of associated structures like pools, decks, and conservatories, as well as demolition and removal costs.

Insurance valuations take into account a range of factors
Rebuild cost estimation
Insurance valuations provide an estimate of the cost to rebuild a property if it is damaged or destroyed. In the case of an unexpected loss or damage, the insurance company will rely on this valuation to determine an appropriate compensation amount.
Projected building material costs
Unlike market valuations, insurance valuations concentrate on the cost of replacing buildings. This includes the type of materials required and how much materials cost at the time of the valuation.
Potential risk factors
Insurance valuations consider various factors that could pose a risk to the property. These factors could include big trees that may damage the property in a storm and other nearby hazards that could affect structural integrity.
Any renovations made to the property must be included in the insurance valuation. This ensures that the compensation amount reflects rebuilding to the property's current state.
Up-to-date information: Failure to update the valuation may result in the property owner receiving a lower compensation that reflects the outdated information.
Protecting against financial loss: Insurance valuations are critical in protecting property owners and insurers against unexpected financial loss.
We recommend that insurance valuations be reassessed at least every two years to ensure that the pricing remains current. It is also a good idea to get an updated valuation if you make improvements to the property. Failure to update the valuation may result in the property owner receiving a lower compensation that reflects outdated information.
