Forms used by the Office of the Valuer-General
The Valuer-General has approved the following forms in accordance with the Valuation of Land Act 2001:
Owner's Return - Urban or Suburban Land
The Valuer-General may request information about land from a land owner or their representative prior to undertaking a valuation in accordance with the Act. This form is for use with urban or suburban land.
Owner's Return - Country Land
The Valuer-General may request information about land from a land owner or their representative prior to undertaking a valuation in accordance with the Act. This form is for use with country land.
Notice of Objection
Land owners or their representatives may object to statutory valuations. Objections must be made within 60 days of the date of Notice of Valuation. Grounds for objection must be clearly stated together with suitable evidence to support the objection.
Objections regarding council rates and land tax are not valid grounds for an objection, as these charges are not determined or administered by the Office of the Valuer-General.
Land owners or their representative may request a new valuation, a Certified Copy of an entry on the Valuation Roll or a Certified Copy of a Certificate of a New Valuation.
Please use this application form for any of these services. Fees may apply.

This is the prescribed form for this purpose.
