Land valuation notices have been issued by the Queensland Valuer-General for properties in the Toowoomba Regional Council area.
The Valuer-General issued 507,000 valuations on Wednesday for 22 council areas across Queensland.
AgForce rural property valuer John Moore urged rural landholders to check their new land valuations carefully to ensure they didn’t end up paying more in council rates and leasehold rent than they should.
He said the valuation of some individual properties in south-west Queensland had increased by up to 100 per cent.
Mr Moore encouraged rural landholders who received new valuations to check them using the Land Valuations Globe and see how they compared with surrounding properties.
“Landholders need to check their valuations and lodge an objection if necessary so they don’t end up paying more than they should,” he said.
Footnote: The South Burnett, North Burnett and Gympie regional council areas have not been included in this round of valuations. The South Burnett was last valued in 2016, and the North Burnett and Gympie areas in 2017.
