Landgate values all properties in Western Australia for rating and taxing purposes in accordance with the Valuation of Land Act 1978.
Landgate valuers conduct independent and unbiased valuations of your property. These are Gross Rental Values (GRVs) and Unimproved Values (UVs). The GRV is calculated every 3 to 6 years (depending on the local government) and UV every year.
These valuations are used by local governments, government agencies and emergency services as a basis to determine property rates, service charges and levies.
Neither the Valuer-General or Landgate sets council rates, emergency service levies or water provider charges. Local governments and other rating authorities use valuations provided from the Valuer-General to determine their own charges.

Pastoral leases are leases over Crown land which gives the lessee the right to graze authorised livestock on the natural vegetation.
The Valuer-General sets the standards and policies used to ensure land in Western Australia is valued in a consistent, accurate and transparent manner and the valuations determined are fair, just, equitable and correct.
