For land situated within a townsite the Unimproved Land Value is the site value of the land. In most cases, this takes into account land value only and does not incorporate the value of any buildings or improvements except for “merged” improvements. Merged improvements relate to improvements such as clearing, draining and filling.
The Unimproved Land Value of land outside of a townsite is based on the value of the land in its original, natural state, taking into account land degradation.
Unimproved land value is determined by reference to the market value of land at the date of valuation. It takes account of all relevant property sales around the time of the valuation.
Unimproved values are determined by the Valuer General each year for all land within WA. The new value comes into force on 30 June each year.
Gross Rental Value is the gross annual rental that the land might reasonably be expected to realise if it were let on a tenancy basis from year to year. The value assumes that the landlord is liable for all rates, taxes and other charges therein, along with the insurance and other outgoings necessary to maintain the value of the land.
Where an annual rental cannot reasonably be determined, then an Assessed value will be attributed to the property. The Assessed value is a percentage of capital value, currently set by regulation at 5%.
Gross Rental values are assessed by the Valuer General every three years in the Perth metropolitan area, and every four to five years in country areas of the State. Valuations are valid as at 1st July of that year.
Gross Rental Value is determined by analysis of rental evidence obtained from property managers, owners and other sources. It represents an estimate of the fair rental value of a particular property. Many factors influence the gross rental value of the property including the location, size of the property, number of bedrooms and bathrooms and the age of the property.

Yes, you can. However, Section 62(1) of the Strata Titles Act 1985 provides that for Unimproved Land Value, the Valuer General must value the whole of the land subject to a strata plan as a single parcel in single ownership. The rating and taxing authority is required to apportion the value in proportion to the unit entitlement, which is shown on the registered strata plan.
