MIPRU 1.3 Remuneration and property valuation requirements for MCD creditors

Property valuation requirements


For the valuation of residential immovable property to enter into an MCD credit agreement:

  1. (1)

    an MCD creditor must use reliable standards for the valuation where the valuation is carried out by the MCD creditor; or

  2. (2)

    where the valuation is carried out by a third party, the MCD creditor must take reasonable steps to ensure that reliable standards are used.

[Note: article 19(1) of the MCD]


An MCD creditor must ensure that:

  1. (1)

    internal and external appraisers conducting property valuations are professionally competent and sufficiently independent from the credit underwriting process so they can provide an impartial and objective valuation; and

  2. (2)

    property valuations are documented in a durable medium.
