Property Valuations

Property valuations are undertaken annually by the Valuer-General Victoria.  Council has no role in property valuations. 

 The Valuation of Land Act 1960 requires all properties within Victoria to be revalued on an annual basis. The current Market Level date for the 2021/22 Rates and Valuation Notices are based on 1 January 2021 levels of value.

You can find more information by visiting the Valuer General Victoria.

What is an Australian Valuation Property Classification Code (AVPCC)

The Australian Valuation Property Clarification Code (AVPCC) is a property identifier. It is assigned to your property by the valuers as per the Fire Service Property Levy Act 2012 showing your land use classification and is now indicated on your rate notice.

The AVPCC has no effect on the valuation of your property, it is used to identify the property’s classification (residential / commercial etc.) which is applied to calculate the Fire Service Property Levy that you contribute in accordance to the Fire Services Property Levy Act 2012.  

Legislation requires this code to be printed on your rates notice.
