What role does Landgate play in valuations?
Landgate valuers conduct independent and unbiased valuations of all properties across WA for rating and taxing purposes. We are entrusted, on behalf of the State Government, to deliver fair, just and equitable land valuations that are in accordance with the VLA.
Landgate’s valuations are used by local governments, government agencies and emergency services as a basis to determine property rates, service charges and levies.
Neither the Valuer-General nor Landgate sets council rates, emergency service levies or water provider charges. Local governments and other rating authorities use valuations provided by the Valuer-General to determine their own charges.
