i appreciate your interest in rendering accurate services. the formats that we see here - developed by each of the banks, are specific only to the particular FI. most FIs do not have specific formats for apartments, flats, row houses, bungalows etc, though you are very right in pointing out that there are specific points. in fact, let me go to the extent of saying, with the earnest desire to be proved wrong, that most FIs do not even read the full report of the valuer. thus though they do not have specific formats related to different property types, they do allow the valuer to modify the formats locally, as and when required, to furnish any additional data, if the valuer so feels necessary.
similarly, the IT department also has a standard format, which is to be annexed by Form-O1. most valuers thus adopt the particular reporting format of the FI, and adopt the format on case specific basis, as far as I understand.
so please go ahead and make the necessary changes in any of the standard formats, to suit your situation. please note that the formats prescribed should work as guidelines, and any additional data that you wish to furnish complementing your findings should definitely be reflected in your report, alongwith the assumptions on which your report relies, if any
so recently when HDFC requested its valuers to furnish online reports, we objected to it based on the facts that the software has no facility to furnish additional information / modules, where required, besides having many other shortcomings.
hope that helps.
As described by you about different banks, their format,their attitude and our responsibility it is always better that one should use standard form O 1.
Thanks for providing detail information about it.
