Note: Your rates notice, land tax assessment or pastoral rent notice is required to be paid by the due date, irrespective of whether an objection has been lodged.


What do I need to lodge a valuation objection?

If you believe your GRV, UV or pastoral rent value is incorrect, review the following requirements. Evidence and supporting documents will need to be provided with your submission:

  • Objections must be submitted within 60 days from the date of issue on your rates notice, land tax assessment or pastoral rent notice.
  • Are you an owner of the property? If not, you must provide a letter of authorisation, signed by the property owner, authorising you to act on their behalf. This authority may allow tenants to act on behalf of their lessor.
  • Have a copy of your rates notice, land tax assessment or pastoral rent notice relevant to the valuation/s that you will be objecting to.
  • Have a copy of the most current floor plans for the building/s (if available).
  • Note down the date of valuation (DoV).
  • Have a copy of mapping documents for rural and pastoral properties. Documents to detail arable land, grazing, waste, flooding, salt. Plus, for pastoral properties, outline pertinent issues e.g. waters, fencing, respective grazing systems, inaccessible areas and carrying capacities.
  • Have your evidence and pertinent information to support your objection:
    • Gross rental value: rental evidence on comparable properties or other pertinent information at (or around) the date of valuation.
    • Gross rental value (on land with no buildings): vacant land sales evidence on comparable land or other pertinent information at (or around) the date of valuation. Information on how GRV is determined on land with no buildings.
    • Unimproved value: vacant land sales evidence on comparable land or other pertinent information at (or around) the date of valuation.
    • Pastoral rent value: please call Landgate on +61 (0)8 9273 7373 to speak to a pastoral valuer.
  • You should inform all other owners of the property that you are lodging an objection.
