During periods of valuation, a Field officer will contact you to schedule an appointment to visit your property. During this visit, they will record all aspects of the property necessary for the Department to accurately value your property. The officers may, in some cases, need to see the inside of the structure in addition to the outside. Pictures will be taken of the outside of the structure. These will be used for valuing the property and easy identification. This information will also be used for our GIS system which will increase the accuracy and transparency of valuations.
Some of the measurements and aspects recorded will be the size and location of the property, the general condition, age and construction materials of any structures on the property, surrounding developments and available public and private services. The homeowner may provide any additional information, which in their opinion may influence the valuation of their property. Personal removable items will not form any part of the valuation process.
