The issue of professional valuation practice standards has recently been the focus of attention in many parts of the world. In particular, the issue of the quality of valuation reports has also been the focus of considerable international attention in recent years; particularly in Australia and the UK. This research seeks to assess whether external valuation client needs and expectations are being met concerning the quality of commercial valuation reports in Malaysia. This will be achieved by using a survey of external users of valuation reports to assess client needs of the quality of commercial property valuation reports in Malaysia. Specific issues to be addressed in the study include quality and reliability of valuation reports, information content of valuation reports, client satisfaction with valuation reports, perceived weaknesses in valuation reports, and suggested solutions to these perceived weaknesses. A property industry survey of major external users of commercial valuation reports in Malaysia was conducted in September 2008 to May 2009 to assess client perceptions of the quality of commercial property valuation reports in Malaysia; this being the first such survey in a developing property market. This survey highlighted the stature and integrity of the valuation reports in Malaysia and the high levels of client satisfaction in valuations for all commercial property types. Concerns were raised in a number of key areas, with proposed solutions to these weaknesses identified. Ongoing issues for ISM and BOVEA regarding the continued enhanced stature of the valuation process, valuation practice standards, valuation reports and public confidence in valuers in Malaysia are identified.
