Wal Dobrow
Managing Director, Dobrow Valuations

Wal Dobrow is a Valuer with over 30 years experience and specialises in Strata and Compulsory Acquisition Matters. He has recently drafted the majority of the API's  NSW Guidance for the Valuation of Unit Entitlements (for both New Strata Plans and the Re-allocation of Unit entitlements in the NCAT), and was instrumental to the change in legislation for Valuers to carry out the unit entitlements for each strata scheme, and the basis of compensation paid in the compulsory termination of a strata scheme. He wrote the Common Property Memorandum that has (with public servant changes) become legislation. He is also an expert in the presentation of Expert Evidence and has been presenting at the API Expert Witness Courses for over nine years. His recent strata topics have included ‘Case Law - Unit Entitlement Valuations - the different valuation methods between Community and Strata Schemes, and dealing with vacant land and heritage buildings;’ and who is and who is NOT a ‘Qualified Valuer’ under the new legislative requirements.
