Land value is the value of your land only. Land value does not include the value of your home or other structures and improvements on your land. However, works including clearing, filling, draining and retaining walls are included in your land value.
In New South Wales (NSW), the Valuer General is the State Government's principal adviser on all land valuation matters. The Valuer General has a statutory responsibility to provide fair and accurate land valuations for rating and taxing purposes, to determine compensation following the compulsory acquisition of land and to provide specialist valuation and property advice to government and the public.
The Valuer General values all land on behalf of the State Government and maintains a Register of Land Values containing information in relation to land ownership, location, occupation, value and other information as required by the Valuation of Land Act 1916.
