Property sales information

​Why details of property sales are shared

We are required to share information regarding the sale and purchase of a property by the Valuer General. This is to ensure transparency on the valuations calculated for rating purposes.

We are also driven by legislation and regulations relating to rating and valuation:

  • Section 31 of the Local Government (Rating) 2002 requires us to be notified of any change of ownership of a property within one month of a sale or transfer.
  • Section 7 of the Rating Valuations Act 1998 requires us to prepare and maintain a District Valuation Roll as specified under Valuer General’s rules.
  • The Valuer General’s rules regulate the content of the District Valuation Roll and the registers required to support it.

For more information on rating valuations, see Rating Valuations Rules 2008.
