New valuations coming for ChCh and Banks Peninsula property owners

Wednesday, November 6, 2019   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: housing

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 4th November 2019

The latest district revaluation shows that Christchurch and Banks Peninsula properties have only risen slightly in value over the past three years.

Christchurch City Council is required to carry out a general revaluation every three years to ensure that rates are spread fairly across the city.

The job was contracted to Quotable Value (QV) and entails revaluing more than 160,000 properties across Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.

The revaluation shows that - on average - values across the district have increased about one per cent since the last revaluation was done in 2016. The average house price is now $540,000.

The biggest increase in residential values has been at the lower end of the market, while analysis by QV shows there has been a softening at the top end.

Property owners will be able to check their new valuations online from Wednesday 27th November 2019. Notices informing owners of their new valuations will be mailed out in the first week of December.

The new values - sometimes called Capital Values - will apply to rates from 1 July 2020.

They do not affect the total rates collected by the Council, which are set through the Council’s Annual Plan, but they do influence how much of the total is collected from each ratepayer.

“If the rating value of your property rises or falls, your rates won’t necessarily go up or down with it," explains Council Head of Financial Management Diane Brandish.

“The important thing is how your property’s capital value has changed relative to other properties in the city. If your property’s value increases by more than average, then your rates bill will go up by more than average.

“If your property’s value increases by less than average, your rates bill will go up by less than average," Ms Brandish says.

How the new values are determined

QV looks at relevant market sales across Christchurch from around 1st August 2019 - which is when the new values will be effective from.

It then uses that information to determine values for similar properties in the area.

The Office of the Valuer-General then independently audits the revaluation process.
