Notice of Valuation

What is a Notice of Valuation

The Notice of Valuation is used to inform land owners and lessees of changes to property valuation details.  An owner of land will be issued a new Notice each time some major change occurs which effects the valuation details.    The values shown on a Notice:
(a) may be used for rating and taxing purposes;  and
(b) are subject to Adjustment Factors which reflect market movements in values. 
For more information see the booklet: Owner's guide - fresh valuations (revaluations).
