Land Valuation Information

Land Owners will recently have received your new land valuation statements from the NSW Valuer General.

Please read the information contained within the New Valuation carefully.

The Valuer General is an independent statutory officer responsible for providing impartial land values. Councils use land values as a way to distribute rates across their local government area. Councils have flexibility in how they use land values for rates. Berrigan Shire Council can give you information on how your rates are calculated. http://www.berriganshire.nsw.gov.au/index.php/council-governance/rates-charges

The Valuer General issues new land values to councils every three years. This notice gives you the opportunity to consider your land value before your council uses it for rating purposes. All councils were scheduled to receive new land values for rating as at 1 July 2019. Notices of Valuation were mailed out in January 2020.

Land value is the unimproved value of your land only. It does not include the value of your home or other structures and improvements.

The Valuer General has published a fact sheet about land values and council rates. The fact sheet aims to assist community members to understand the valuation system. It also includes contact details for landholders to access more information or ask questions.

For more information please visit www.valuergeneral.nsw.gov.au   to find property sales information, valuation reports, policies and factsheets and land value summaries.

Or call Valuation Services on 1800 110 038.
