Valuations & Objections
Adoption of valuations
The Council adopts the most recent valuations made by the Valuer-General, that are made available to the Council at the time that Council adopts the budget.
If a ratepayer is dissatisfied with the valuation made by the Valuer- General, you may object to the valuation referred to on the notice within 60 days after the date of service of receiving the notice of valuation.
a) if you have previously received a notice under the Local Government Act 1999 referring to the valuation and informing you of a 60 day objection period, the objection period is 60 days after service of the first notice. ;
b) you may not object to the valuation if the Valuer- General has already considered an objection by you to that valuation.
The Valuer-General may extend the 60 day objection period where it be shown there is reasonable cause to do so by a person entitled to make an objection to a valuation.
A written objection to a valuation must set out the full and detailed grounds for objection. Objections can also be submitted via an online form at http://www.sa.gov.au/landservices and enter “Objecting to a Valuation” in the search field. Differential Rates (and or charges) imposed by rates (and or charges) are still due and payable by the due date even if an objection has been lodged.
Objections are to be forwarded to:
