You may have completed some work on your property that didn’t require a building consent (such as a deck, landscaping, a new kitchen etc) or you may simply consider that your rating valuation was not right at the time of your council's last revaluation.
To reflect the current condition of your property you can request an Urgent Rating Value Review by one of our experienced property valuers.
An inspection of your property will usually take place within five working days from your request. Our property valuer will check the accuracy of the property valuation and details held on it. They will then compare your property’s characteristics to those of similar properties as at the date of the your council's last revaluation to determine whether your rating value should be changed.
Our property valuers are required to comply with strict guidelines set out in the Rating Valuations Act 1998 (Section 16), which outlines the need for consistency in values across all properties that are considered similiar. Find out more information on what is involved with an Urgent Rating Value Review.
Following on from the inspection, you’ll be posted an updated owners notice.
Rating valuations do not include chattels – carpets, drapes, light fittings, dishwashers etc, and are different from full market valuations, which reflect the current market value of the property at the time of the inspection.
