Description The value of special premises constitutes an important segment of valuation practice in Australia. A number of special valuation considerations arise in the appraisal of this class of premises. However, the most compelling reason for studying the valuation of special premises is the fact that these classes of property provide an ideal vehicle whereby valuation principles and methods of valuation can be critically evaluated by students.
