Terms of engagement acknowledgement letter
There are usually a range of letter formats referring to the terms of business and the valuation procedure and assumptions. Such letters of acknowledgement deal with the remaining matters required by Red Book to be dealt with in the contract, with these commonly varying from job to job. They must include a reference to all the minimum terms listed in Red Book with particular care being taken to make the necessary disclosures. The acknowledgement letter will take precedence over the 'standard' terms, but it may still be prudent to modify the standard clauses if they directly contradict any element of the service as expressed in the acknowledgement letter.
