How much will it cost?

At Sum Insured Valuations, being a division of Valuation Solutions Ltd, we keep a close eye on industry fees – we regularly investigate competition prices.

It is our policy to ensure our fees remain at the industry average and therefore very competitive.

If your house fits our standard criteria** you will be looking to pay our standard fee:

Reinstatement Valuation Report = $550.00 incl gst

When considering the cost of professional sum insured valuation advice, two points of note:

1.   Our fee is an ALL-INCLUSIVE standard price – we do not charge by the square meter as is the fee structure of other professionals.

2.   It is an INITIAL ONE-OFF expense – you certainly do not need to instruct a valuation every time you renew your insurance policy! Unless you have under-gone significant renovations, an annual adjustment for inflation is all you will need to consider moving forward.  It’s just getting the number correct initially that is critical.

**Our Standard Property Criteria:

  • flat contour land
  • floor area less than 200m2
  • local Christchurch area


Majority of Christchurch properties fit within our standard fee, but our fee and / or capacity can vary depending on things like:

  • contour of land i.e. extent of foundations / retaining walls
  • technical land category/zoning
  • size of property and out buildings
  • inclusion of ‘heritage features’
  • inclusion of ‘recreational features’ i.e. in-ground pools, tennis courts etc.
  • inclusion of ‘special features’ i.e. bridges, jetties, wind mills etc.
  • travel time to property
  • the urgency of your request

So given every valuation estimate is unique, we confirm all quotes prior to beginning any report.
