    How can I get a market value in writing on a property for 2015, I need it in writing for future capital gains when we sell the property? It was a PPOR then became IP when we bought another PPOR. We need it in writing so we only pay CG from date we bought new property. Do I go through real estate agent or can we just use bank valuation?

    Any agent using APM Pricefinder can do a back-dated report for the market worth of the property at a specified time in the past.

    That's pretty handy to know.
    Is that going to be sufficient for the ATO?

    According to Market valuation for tax purposes | Australian Taxation Office "A person without formal valuation qualifications whose assessment is based on reasonably objective and supportable data" is allowable.
    So I think it should be fine.

    But is it going to be a good value for the investor - I would still engage a valuer telling them what you want it for. This will hold stronger weight too if challenged by the ATO.

    Any qualified valuer can do it without any issues.

    We used Opteon to backdate the value of a property nearly 15 years - best few $00's we ever spent.
