When we receive your objection we will write to you to let you know we have received your objection. If we need more information, we will let you know in this letter.
You can contact us if you have any questions or concerns during the review process.
A valuer will review your land value
If you have asked us to review your land value, a valuer who did not make the original valuation will do the review.
During this process, they will:
- assess the supporting evidence you provide
- compare your land value to sale prices of similar properties to see if it is in line with market evidence.
They may also contact you to discuss your objection.
This comparison will include sales that are available during the review, which may mean they were not available when we originally valued your land.
We will provide you with a copy of the valuer’s preliminary report. You will then have 21 days to request a conference if there are any matters raised in your objection submission that haven’t been addressed or if there is a substantive error of fact.
We will consider the information you provide before we finalise your objection. If we don’t hear from you by the due date, we will base our final decision on the valuer’s preliminary report.
We will review your property information
If you ask us to review your property information, we will review it and make changes as needed. We may contact you to discuss this.
If we change your property information, we will also check if this affects your land value. If it does, we will prepare a new valuation.
We will send you a new Notice of Valuation if we change your property information or land value.
The majority of reviews are undertaken by contract valuers on our behalf.
For quality assurance, we may review valuation reports prior to writing to you with the contract valuer's recommendation.
The valuation report is reviewed to ensure fairness and compliance with the Valuation of Land Act 1916, case law and Valuer General policy.
Reviews for quality assurance will always be undertaken by a valuer who did not make the original valuation.
We aim to write to you within 90 days to give you the outcome of your objection.
We will tell your council and Revenue NSW if we change your land value. They will adjust your rates and taxes if they need to.
