Not everything needs an insurance valuation, most insurance policies cover single items up to a certain value unless you have specified them in the policy. However items over the policy value should have an independent valuation to make sure you are not under insured. For example if you are covered up to $2 000 for a Rug (under fixed limits of your policy) and your rug is worth $5000 to replace, you are covered only to $2000 UNLESS you have it specified for a certain amount*.
Its important to update your valuation every 5 years.
Whether you are updating your insurance, SMSF, having your Will prepared, obtaining an up dated market value or acting as an Executor for an Estate, having a professionally prepare Insurance Valuation Report will help you make the right decisions.
