As standard we supply both Valocity and Core Logic Clearing House approved templates. You can build your own as well however we suggest that the Report Writer is more suited to simple formats.
It may be the case that you use it for the majority of your work and use your old word template approach for unusual or more complex valuations.
For a fee we are able to design and implement your own personalised Report template.
If there is an issue with the description of a property please let us know about it so we can raise it with the relevant council to be corrected. If you change something on a Version 8 Valbiz Property record 'Council Details' tab and not inform the council of their error, they will keep sending out the same mistake which will overwrite your correction in Valbiz.
However you can go to the Property records 'Alternate Details' tab and press the 'Copy Council Detail' button (copies over whats in the 'Councils Details' tab), then make changes to that information to enable whatever you wish to be immediately included in your Reports.
If you migrated from an earlier Valbiz release this tab will be populated with your earlier Valbiz versions property details including changes you have made, and have the name "Alternative Details (Archived)". After the first time you press the 'Copy Council Detail' button, the name of the tab will change to "Alternative Details" as your archived property has now been overwritten
As long as you used the correct Roll / Assessment / Suffix then that record will be linked with the latest DVR details and the details you added will be available in the Properties 'Alternative Details' tab.
If you have loaded a property with an incorrect Roll / Assessment / Suffix, then the property status will be marked as 'Unspecified (X)' and will look like a cancelled property as it cannot be linked to an active DVR record.
You can go to the Property records 'Alternate Details' tab and press the 'Copy Council Detail' button (copies over whats in the 'Councils Details' tab), then make changes to that information to enable whatever you wish to be immediately included in your Reports.
If you migrated from an earlier Valbiz release this tab will be populated with your earlier Valbiz versions property details including changes you have made, and have the name "Alternative Details (Archived)".
In most cases yes. This is the best way to ensure your unique Valbiz system is in an environment that provides peak operating performance for all our users. We will manage all data updates, software upgrades and database backups for you.
If you have a unique environment and still wish to host your own database please contact us so we can accommodate you.
Many do, however sometimes records can be sent that have '0' bedrooms recorded when historical data had populated this field in your database. To manage this we have had to come up with a set of rules which are:
If a property has no record for bedrooms, and is supplied with bedrooms – update with newly supplied information
If a property changes category to RV, RB & RM, LV, IV or CV – the number of bedrooms can be removed
If a property is not RV, RB & RM, LV, IV or CV and an update comes in with 0 or blank bedrooms, do not update
If a property is not RV, RB & RM, LV, IV or CV and an update comes in with a number of bedrooms greater, or lesser than what is currently held, but is not 0 then update to newly supplied information
No. Headway pays for a general license that allows us to display the a map and aerial with boundaries within your database.
There will be a small monthly fee to access the anticipated realestate.co.nz images when the shortly become available.
