Compensation Property Valuations

If your property has been acquired by the government or will be affected by a proposed project, then you may be eligible for compensation for any loss in value of the subject property. As such, an independent property valuation is required to provide a compensation property valuation to help determine any loss of value caused by the proposal or acquisition.

As outlined in the Land Acquisition Act 1969, the actual value of the property is required to determine any imposition the proposal has on the property’s value. As such, an independent property valuation aims to determine the fair market value of the property that reflects it’s worth if it were not impacted by the proposed project. This will offer an objective analysis on the subject property without agenda or bias.

Legislation states that only an independent certified valuer is required to undertake a property valuation to assess the fair market value. This is because certified valuers are legally qualified to perform a valuation that meets the regulatory requirements. An independent property valuation will take into account a variety of factors to ensure the fair market value is reached. To determine this value, a certified property valuation will include information such as:

  • Property size including dimensions and floor plan
  • Location
  • Improvement value
  • Zoning restrictions and permitted land use
  • Comparable sales in the local area
