Items Likely to Have Disputed Values
Barring a situation in which the parties have an outright hostile relationship, it is unlikely that there will be significant energy expended to dispute the value of most small-ticket items such as small appliances, office furniture, etc. However, when objects hold significant sentimental value, are worth more at a baseline calculation, or have a value that is more highly subjective there can be substantial disagreements. The following items are likely to have disputed values and therefore it may be necessary to bring in a professional to perform a property valuation when these are involved:
- Rare books and historical documents
- Certain forms of celebrity and sports memorabilia
- Antique furniture
- Automobiles and other motor vehicles
- Vintage or designer clothing
- Some kinds of office equipment
- Heavy machinery or tools
