What to do if you object to the statutory assessment applied?

An increase or reduction in the value of land or property can result in a significant increase or saving on rates and taxes for that financial year (and beyond).

If you believe you have grounds to object to your assessment you have the right to lodge a formal objection. The objection must be lodged within 60 days of receiving the notice of assessment.  

Both property owners and tenants have the right to object. 

To object to a statutory valuation assessment, you must provide sufficient market evidence to support your claim and substantiate that your valuation assessment is incorrect. This market evidence must demonstrate that the current statutory assessment is 10% more than the market for any amendment to be made.

Several other special considerations also need to be taken into account when presenting evidence to support an objection.
