Process:

Once your application is received, you will be provided with a list of independent Review Valuers (appointed by His Excellency, The Governor) available in your area. Once you have made your selection, the Review Valuer will confirm, increase or decrease the valuation.

If the Review Valuer process determines the valuation should change by an amount greater than 10% (increase or decrease) of the Valuer-General's valuation, the Valuer-General must make an alteration to the valuation and valuation roll as necessary.

Where a valuation is decreased more than 10% upon a review, the fee paid by the applicant will be refunded.

If you remain dissatisfied with the outcome of the Review by Valuer process, you can continue to the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (SACAT) process.

Note:
* If Review by Valuer option is chosen, and you are dissatisfied with the Review by Valuer decision, you can engage SACAT to have that decision reviewed.
**If SACAT option is chosen, and you are dissatisfied with SACAT’s decision, you can request an Internal Review by SACAT or review by the Supreme Court, however you cannot utilise the Review by Valuer option to review a decision of SACAT.
