How your property is valued

Your property's value is assessed every two years and we use this value to calculate your rates.

We look at information such as market prices and rents, your property type and your property features as well as sales information from other properties in your area.

The requirements of Municipal Valuations are governed by the Valuation of Land Act 1960.

Since 2000, Council has been required to conduct a general valuation of all rateable property every two years. The current valuation has a base date of 1 January 2010. Rates notice for 2012/13 will have a valuation date of 11 January 2012.
