Listed valuations a complex but exciting space


Identification of Work (IDoW) Update



Valuation has always played an important role in property, particularly in the listed sector where so many different parties have interests at stake. In the current economic environment, there is increasing pressure on valuers across all spheres of valuation - but particularly in listed property - to provide clients with information not just on the value of an asset today, but on how it is expected to perform going forward. Patrick O'Connell, operations director of Spectrum Valuations and Asset Solutions, tells Asset his views on the subject.

The approach being followed with the IDoW process moving forward.

The CBE is following its statutory mandate to, after consultation with the CC and in consultation with the councils for the professions, identify the scope of work for each category of registered persons. This follows recommendations made by the six councils for the built environment professions (CBEP). The CBE, as per the professions acts (the six acts establishing the CBEP) and the Council for the Built Environment Act, 43 of 2000 (the CBE Act), has the statutory mandate to identify work. The CBE has identified the scope of work for each category of registration and is interpreting the scope of work as “the range of work performed by a registered person in terms of a specific piece of legislation other than the legislation that created the councils for the professions, or the statutory duties which may be performed by a registered person.”
