The API is pleased to present an expert panel from the major Australian banks. Come and ask questions and learn more about the banking side of the fence from our experienced panellists representing residential, corporate and institutional banking sectors.

Our expert panel will cover:

  • What, how and when are valuation reports required?
  • What valuation assumptions are reasonable to make for mortgage security purposes?
  • How are assumptions around letting up, incentive, capex and cashflow inputs from the valuation utilised in lending decisions?
  • Banks' security value – how is this assessed?
  • Comments and feedback on valuation reports – what’s good, some shortfalls and possible improvements?
  • Why do banks require a GST inclusive and exclusive assessment? What is Net Realisation?
  • When and why is an ‘In One Line’ Valuation required?
  • What are appropriate debt sizing metrics in today's environment? What role does a valuation report play?
  • What are appropriate financial covenants?
  • Loan to Value Ratio (LVR), Interest Coverage Ratio (ICR) and Loan to Total Development Cost Ratio (LTC)? 

The event is not only ideal for valuers but all property professionals who are interested in understanding and having a deeper dive into how valuation reports are assessed by banks and the integral role they play in the banking and finance sector.
