On 6 March 2019, Queensland’s Valuer-General issued the annual land valuations.
The 2019 valuations cover approximately 60% of Queensland properties. The valuations relate to 18 local government areas spread across the State, from Weipa in the North, Longreach in the West, and Brisbane in the South-East.
State-wide, there has been an overall uplift in total land value of 8.2% from 2018 valuations.
The 2019 valuations will take effect on 30 June 2019 and will be used in the assessment of local government rates, State land tax and State rental land (for leasehold land).
If you disagree with the valuation of your land, can lodge an objection with the Valuer-General.
Any objection must:
- be made in the approved form;
- comply with the strict requirements of the Land Valuation Act 2010;
- be accompanied by sufficient supporting information; and
- be made by 7 May 2019.
The Valuer-General must consider and decide all properly made objections. If you disagree with the objection decision, you can seek a review and/or lodge an appeal for a rehearing in the Land Court.
If you would like further information, please contact Ciaran Houston, Principal or Alexandra Hall, Solicitor.
