Beware the land valuer's power

Beware the power of one person, the land valuer. With the stroke of a pen, a home's valuation can be manipulated down or up.

Personally, mine devalued by 10 per cent in the space of six months. Yet I have been left with no way of appealing this "independent" valuation.

The Commonwealth Bank, being very flippant about the matter, dismissed my complaint as trivial.

Needless to say I am changing lenders.
