    Who does the valuation on investment property when applying for pension?
    How is it assessed? Is it assessed at all or do you put valuation on it
    guided by previous sales?. Googled it but can't find any info.

    This happened to my parents. In Melbourne the Valuer General overvalued their only IP and got them kicked off the part pension. They sold the property but the price did not reach the valuation even though they sold near the peak of the boom.
