How much should I pay for valuation fees?

After the loan to purchase a property was approved by bank and signed the SNP by buyer, the bank will appoint a valuation company to conduct a valuation report for Application of Credit Facility. All the cost of valuation will be borne by the buyer. As a buyer, do you know how much should pay for the valuation fees?


Here is how valuation fees calculate base on the property you purchased:-

For First RM100K =0.25%
Next residue up to RM2 mil = 0.2%
Next residue up to RM7 mil = 0.167%
Next residue up to RM15 mil = 0.125%
Next residue up to RM50 mil = 0.10%
Next residue up to RM200 mil = 0.067%
Next residue up to RM500 mil = 0.05%
Next residue more than RM500 mil = 0.04%

Minimum Fee : As above, subject to a minimum fee of RM 400 per property.

Example 1

House value at RM 400K
Valuation Fees Calculation:
a. First RM 100K = RM 100,000 x 0.25% = RM 250
b. Residue = (RM 400,000 – RM 100,000)x 0.2% = RM 600
c. Total Valuation Fees = RM 250 + RM 600 = RM 850

Example 2

House value at RM 135K
Valuation Fees Calculation:
a. First RM100K = RM 100,000 x 0.25% = RM 250
b. Residue = (RM 135,000 – RM 100,000)x 0.2% = RM 70
c. Total Valuation Fees = RM 250 + RM 70 = RM 320

However, the minimum fee is RM 400 per property. Therefore, the house value at RM 135k, valuation fees is around RM 400.  This amount may not include the 6% GST and transport & documents charges.
Note: Valuation fees are for reference only. It may vary with actual valuation fees. It also may have different cost base on the location of the property. I have a study where valuation fees is much expensive at mainland Butterworth compare to Penang Island.

    I have just purchased a condominium in selayang Batu Caves for RM185,000 but taking a bank loan for RM143955.00 my Bank valuer is charging me RM950.00 .

    The Bank solicitor are charging me a fee including disbursements RM5235.72

    I feel both the valuation and legal fees seem rather high.

    Kindly comment Tq

    I am planning to sell my apartment currently which I roughly quoted at certain amount. I have got a buyer through an agent who does not want to reveal the details of which bank is doing the valuation. How shall I go about to find out what is the real valuation for my property as not to rely to much on what the agent is saying!

  6. Maswady Maskin

    Hi, you are mentioned about the valuation fees. Is it all in? How about the printing, mileage, telephone, fax, postage cost?
    Why Valuer need to do the title search, which has been done by the lawyer. All the cost to be paid by the buyer. Meaning to say buyer paid double the same thing for each party i.e. Lawyer, Valuer to do the same thing.

    i would like to seek for advise in the event the snp has signed and the loan has approved and the valuation report has been done by valuer however unfortunately the transaction cannot be completed due to the rejection of the state consent by the land office.

    is not fair to the borrower to pay.

    awaiting ur soonest reply.

    thank you

  16. MrGlenn

    I bought a condo unit from the developer that is brand new, yet I’m told I need to pay valuation fee. The price was RM720,000. Yet the valuator from the bank contacted me and asked for a RM1700 valuation fee. I disagreed, since it was too high. Can I use a valuator from another bank?

    Morning to you Sir/Ms,

    I would like to justify my valuation fee. My loan approved by Ambank at 95K, recently one of well known valuer company quoted to me valuation fee of RM 900. Currently I am waiting for his report and quotation details.

    Thank you.

    Warm regards,

    • Chat Property Malaysia

      Yes, you may approach another valuer company to compare the quotation.
      You may check with your banker if other valuer company is their panel or not.

      Question 1: Valuer will be based on 400K, the fees will be charged based on 400K
      Question 2: Normally your banker will proposed a valuer to you, it depends on your locations and which bank.

    Is it reasonable for house at Rawang with RM 600k and they charge me valuation fees RM 1800(before discount RM 2240)? Is from RHB Bank.. Can i get the market price for valuation fees?
    Please advice….

    • Chat Property Malaysia

      Hi Daphne:

      You always can ask for more details break down for the fees charges.
      Then you can ask for alternative valuator for comparisons.

  24. Vincent Lau

    These valuation fees make no sense to me.

    Most professional services charge people based on hours spent to do a certain work. Surely the effort spent to value a house worth RM500k is the same as the effort on a RM700k house? Why should the higher house value pay more.

    And also, how can the fees be tied to the valuation? That means, the valuers would intentionally value the property slightly higher to get a higher fee!

  25. Cofkkin

    Recently purchase a house bank valuation is 400k, after we done all the nessenary docs and bank loan, lawyer called yesterday required to TOp up another 1k fees as government valuation is 450k.

      I am not sure what is the reason behind.
      You may ask details from your lawyer for clarification.

      Hi Jessica:

      I do not think any different if pay first or later.
      The valuation company have their own business ethic so far.

  27. SALLY

    An apartment in Nilai market value is RM 200k,but the valuer charger RM 1050 for valuation fees. I think it is overpriced. After negotiating with the company, they offered RM 1000. I called the Banker, they told me they have their own price for that. From the breakdown, they charged RM 400 for the first 100k.
    1. Is the price reasonable?
    2. What can I do ? The agent refused to reduce the price and they are the bank panel valuer. I really not satisfied where some other companies offered RM 600+, and one of my friend only pay RM 1000 for RM 400k property.

    • Chat Property Malaysia

      Dear Sally:

      I believed you may discussed again and to understand why it is so high compare to the standard. Also asked if you would like to have you own valuer.

      • SALLY

        I talked to the valuer, they told me because of my aprtment has strata title. That’s why they can’t give me any discount. May I know, is it correct that valuation fees will be higher when a property has strata title?

  28. Tabitha

    Where can I get a list of valuers please? Where to check if the valuer is accredited? Is a soft copy of a valuation report acceptable? Is there such a thing? Thanks.

      Hi Salini,
      You may discussed with the valuer why there is a gap in this. You may ask for the breakdown.

  32. Vincen

    I bought a landed house RM600k. The bank valuer charge me RM1300 for all in fees. Is it expensive or consider okay?

    • Chat Property Malaysia

      Used the guideline as below:
      For First RM100K =0.25% (100,000 x 0.25%= 250)
      Next residue up to RM2 mil = 0.2%(500,000 x 0.2%= 1000)
      Total will be RM1250.

      As such, i will say, it is reasonable
