Rates Objections

Objection to property valuation

Common and reasonable grounds for lodging an objection to a property valuation may include circumstances where:

  • the capital improved value of the property has increased more than the market value of comparable properties in your area, and you have not undertaken any significant improvements to the property in recent years; or
  • you have grounds to believe your property would be unlikely to fetch a price similar to the capital improved value if you were to attempt to sell your property this year; or
  • You recently purchased the property for an amount substantially different than the capital improved value.

If you have reasonable grounds to believe your property has been incorrectly valued, you have a right to lodge an objection within 60 days of the issue date of your Rates Notice.

Please contact the Property and Rates team immediately to discuss your concerns and to commence the objection process.
