Government valuation and property advisory services

The State Valuation Service (SVS) is the largest public sector provider of valuation and property related services in the state, employing more than 140 valuers across a network of 19 regional locations throughout Queensland.

We provide annual statutory valuation and specialised property advisory services to other government agencies, and maintain the valuations roll on behalf of rateable local government councils across Queensland in return for the payment of regulated fees.

SVS maintains the Queensland valuation and sales database and provides maintenance valuations in the following circumstances:

  • Changes to planning schemes, local laws or other local government decisions
  • Subdivisions
  • Change of land use
  • Inadvertent omissions or correction of errors
  • Where land becomes rateable
  • Combining and separating valuations
  • Public works/services
  • Damage from adverse natural causes
  • Loss or acquisition of rights related to land
  • To ensure uniformity with comparable parcels
  • Where part of the land ceases to be rateable.

Our specialised advisory services include:

  • asset valuations of land, buildings, infrastructure and plant and equipment
  • market rental assessments of residential, commercial, industrial and special use premises
  • easement valuations for various infrastructure providers including high-voltage transmission facilities
  • resumption/acquisition valuation and negotiations
  • Land Court representation for acquisitions and other matters
  • market valuations for property disposals (sale of surplus state land) and purchases.
