Valuing your Property

The Office of the Valuer-General (OVG) is not a part of Council and it does not set your rates. It is an independent and impartial body that provides a valuation of your property. By law, your Council then uses this valuation to help determine the level of rates payable.

For details on how your property is valued, the cycle of revaluation, adjustment factors, etc. visit the website of OVG by clicking here.

Your property will be revalued when:

  • a new building has been erected
  • improvements are made to your property, e.g. garage, swimming pool, deck, etc.
  • land is subdivided
  • amalgamation/separation of properties occurs
  • an existing building is altered or demolished.
