Studies on the subject of clients' perception of the quality of valuation reports have been extensively carried out in countries like UK, Australia and the US. However, the topic has not received much attention in most developing countries such as Nigeria. The purpose of this paper is to ascertain the perception of the clients who are the users of the valuation reports concerning the quality of valuations reports emanating from Nigerian Valuers. The survey was carried out with a view to addressing such issues regarding the quality of valuation reports with the intention of ascertaining the level of the clients satisfaction with the quality of valuations reports being given them by their professional valuers and to further identify the strengths/ weaknesses of the reports and make necessary suggestions for improvement if the views of clients suggest so. To achieve the objective of the study twenty four commercial banks and fifty property companies randomly selected were sampled in Lagos metropolis. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistical tools. The study revealed serious concern regarding the quality of valuation reports in Nigeria and necessary recommendations for addressing the identified problems were preferred.
