API Training Room - Sydney
Level 3, 60 York Street
Sydney, New South Wales 2000

The classic definition of market value, contained in the “Spencer Case”, is not the same as “Market Value” as defined in s.56(1)(a)-(b) and s.61 of the Land Acquisition (Just Terms Compensation) Act 1991. This different approach to assessing market value required under the Act means that the traditional “highest and best use” has to be ignored. In addition, the amendments coming into force on 1 March 2017 have also changed the definition of market value at s.56(3) for specific properties. 

Join us as Peter Dempsey FAPI from Dempsey Valuation and Advisory and Ian Hemmings, Barrister, Martin Place Chambers explain this crucial difference when undertaking Just Terms Compensation assessments.

Professor John Sheehan AM, LFAPI will act as moderator for the forum.

Who should attend: Property developers, property financiers, property lawyers, valuers, asset managers, property researchers, development advisors, Local and State Government agencies, property advisors
