Land valuation reviews
SACAT reviews valuations of land made by the Valuer-General or by a council. Upon review, SACAT will consider the valuation of the land afresh, and will make the correct or preferable decision upon what the value should be.
- confirm the valuation
- decrease the valuation
- increase the valuation.
SACAT deals with applications from:
- owners and occupiers of land dissatisfied with a valuation made by the Valuer-General or a council, where the applicant is seeking an order from SACAT that the valuation of the land should be be reduced
- from the Valuer-General or a council, against a decision of a review valuer, where the Valuer-General or the council is seeking an order from SACAT that the valuation of the land should be increased.
SACAT does not:
- make orders that the amount of council rates, land tax, SA Water charges, or Emergency Services Levy should be reduced or that you receive a refund in respect to these charges.
Before applying to SACAT for a review of a land valuation decision, you must:
- make sure that the time limit for a review of your valuation has not passed
- make sure you have a copy of the notice of the valuation decision you want to challenge.
