About statutory land valuations in Queensland

Privacy and use of information

We collect property information to undertake statutory valuations in accordance with the Land Valuation Act 2010. We use this information to maintain the valuation roll, which includes the names and addresses of property owners, the sale price and date of sale of each property, and its unimproved or site value. Information from the valuation roll is made publicly available; you can purchase information from the valuation roll through our business centres and resellers of property data.

For more information, read our Procedure for dealing with personal information collected under the Land Valuation Act 2010 (PDF, 467KB).

Officers’ access to land

Authorised officers of the State Valuation Service are allowed to enter public places and private property, with the owner’s consent.

Requests for information

The State Valuation Service can request information to help carry out the functions of the Valuer-General. This could include information relevant to a sales transaction (e.g. copies of relevant documents) or information about rentals income received, expected outgoings, incentives or other relevant terms of a lease.

You may face penalties if you do not comply with these requests for information.

Suppression of personal details

The Valuer-General may suppress ownership details in the valuation roll if there is a risk to a person’s safety or property, whether the person is the landowner or a person living at that address. To apply, complete the Application for suppression direction (Form 63) (PDF, 545KB) and lodge it along with supporting documents at one of our business centres.

Industry code of conduct

To address concerns about the inappropriate use of data for direct marketing purposes, a self-regulated industry property data code of conduct is in place. For further information or if you have any concerns about the misuse of the data, email the Code Oversight Committee at
