What happens once my objection is lodged?

Following receipt of your objection, Landgate will take the following steps to a resolution.

Gross Rental Value (GRV) objection

  1. Your application and supporting documentation (e.g. rental evidence on comparable properties as at date of valuation) will be reviewed, to verify that Landgate has been provided with the required information to assess your objection. You will be notified within 5 working days if further information is required or to advise that we can proceed with your request.
  2. Once we have all the required information your objection will be allocated to a valuer. The valuer will review the evidence provided, analyse the information against property market values as at the date of valuation and assess the individual property attributes to confirm a fair rental value for the property.
  3. Once the review has been completed, the valuer will contact you to discuss their findings.
  4. You will be informed by letter of the Valuer-General’s final decision; either that the objection is ‘disallowed’ (the original GRV is deemed valid) or the objection is ‘allowed’ (the GRV has been adjusted).
  5. Landgate will inform all rating authorities if the GRV has been adjusted. These authorities will adjust any rates or taxes and provide a refund or credit, if applicable.

Please note, due to the complexity of some objections, Landgate may require up to 12 months for an objection to be finalised.

Unimproved Value (UV) objection

  1. Your application and supporting documentation (e.g. comparable vacant land sales evidence as at date of valuation) will be reviewed, to verify that Landgate has been provided with the required information to assess your objection. You will be notified within 5 working days if further information is required or to advise that we can proceed with your request.
  2. Once we have all the required information your objection will be allocated to a valuer. The valuer will review the evidence provided, analyse the information against property market values as at the date of valuation and review the individual property attributes to confirm a fair Unimproved Value for the property.
  3. Once the review has been completed, the valuer will contact you to discuss their findings.
  4. You will be informed by letter of the Valuer-General’s final decision; either that the objection is ‘disallowed’ (the original UV is deemed valid) or the objection is ‘allowed’ (the UV has been adjusted).
  5. Landgate will inform all rating authorities if the UV has been amended. These authorities will adjust any rates or taxes and provided a refund, if applicable.

Please note, due to the complexity of some objections, Landgate may require up to 12 months for an objection to be finalised.
