Work on the 2014 revaluation is underway. The 2014 revaluation is the eighth since biennial valuations were introduced in 2000. All properties across the state are valued as at the same date (1 January) every two years.
The Valuation of Land Act 1960 provides for either councils or the Valuer-General (if a council opts to transfer the authority) to manage and deliver the valuation.
The Valuer-General is responsible for establishing and maintaining a valuation record of general and supplementary valuations.
For more information on the changes please visit Victoria's rating valuations - managing your valuations webpage.
As the 2014 revaluation progresses, more information on the processes will be available online.
The Valuation Best Practice (VBP) Specifications Guidelines assist councils to prepare documents for biennial revaluations. The guidelines provide templates and information for councils to:
- prepare a contract for valuation and related services
- manage the contract
- improve the quality of valuations and property databases
- better define the relationship between the council, the valuer and Valuer-General Victoria.
The guidelines are reviewed after each revaluation and amended where appropriate after consultation with councils and valuation industry groups.
Templates and spreadsheets have been developed to assist valuers in preparing these submissions.Templates for the 2014 revaluation are available below.
If you have any questions regarding the VBP Specifications or the templates, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Stephen Jarvis (Deputy Valuer-General, Rating Authority Valuations) on (03) 8636 2578 or Terry Maguire (Manager, Certification, Rating Authority Valuations) on (03) 8636 2571.
