As a ratepayer you can object to a valuation of your property.
Objections must be made within two months of the date of the annual rates notice. The legislated timeframes set out in Section 18 of the Valuation of Land Act 1960 are obligatory. Neither Valuer-General Victoria nor a municipal council has the power to review the objection if it does not fall within the statutory time limit.
The objection can be made in relation to the value of a property or on other grounds specified in the Valuation of Land Act 1960.
Before starting your application, make sure you have your Annual Rates Notice handy as you will need important information from your notice to submit your enquiry.
Alternatively, you can download and print your application to send via post.
If you object to a valuation, you must still pay your rates by the due date. Failure to pay rates by the required date generally results in interest being imposed. Any reduction in rates caused by a successful objection will then be credited to your account.
