New online tool shows latest land valuations
Queenslanders can now access real-time property data showing the state’s latest land valuations.
Queensland Valuer-General Neil Bray, who is tasked with issuing land valuations for determining council rates, state land tax, determination of rentals for leasehold land, said the new online tool displayed valuation information for landowners in 22 out of 62 rateable local government areas receiving new valuations today.
“The valuations online tool can help Queensland landowners better understand their land valuation and local property market,” Mr Bray said.
“The online tool combines information displayed from our online valuation roll, residential market information and mapping products in to one easy-to-use online search accessible on desktop and mobile devices.
“The new data indicates increases in land value in a number of major urban centres, as well across the farming sector and a small decline in some regional towns impacted by the resources sector.
“The 2018 annual statutory land valuations are used to establish local government rates, state land tax and state land rental purposes from 30 June 2018.
Mr Bray said landowners who believed their valuation was incorrect and could provide supporting information could lodge their objection online or at the address shown at the top of their valuation notice by 8 May 2018.
“Landowners without internet access can get an objection kit that includes a step-by-step guide by phoning 1300 664 217.
“It is important to note that some areas of the State have not been re-valued in 2018. This is simply due to the market information indicating no major variation in market values since the previous valuation period.
The new land valuation data for 2018 can be accessed online at www.qld.gov.au/landvaluation.
Queensland Globe also gives landowners access to detailed valuation information allowing users to search for a property or pan the map to areas of interest and zoom down to individual property level. Landowners can access the Queensland Globe year round via the Land Valuations website www.qld.gov.au/landvaluation.
Hard copies of the valuation list can be viewed at Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy business centres and local government offices during normal business hours until close of business on 5 June 2018.
