Appraisals and valuations

The appraisal of a good is subject to a strict legal regulation that not only establishes the criteria and methodology to realize it, but also determines who can do it. This regulation, which in Spain is constituted by a Ministerial Order dated on November 30, 1994 and issued by the Department of Economy and Estate, is a norm that establishes a concrete methodology based on a few definitions and principles that inspires its own draft.
