Valuations two years old
A Landgate spokeswoman confirmed GRVs were calculated every three years in the metropolitan area because it was more cost-effective.
The GRV this year applied from July 1 has a “date valuation” of August 1, 2015.
“All properties in the 30 local government authorities that make up the Perth metropolitan area have the same date of valuation,” she said.
“To date, Landgate has received no formal objections to gross rental values from City of Canning property owners.”
She said councils and other organisations used valuations provided by the Valuer-General to determine their own charges, based on their own calculations.
Mr Green said the Valuation of Land Act 1978 section 22.1 said general valuation should at all times be accurate and up-to-date and should be made, so far as practicable, every financial year.
The City of Canning has noticed an increase in calls regarding property valuations. GOSNELLS
