Property Valuation

Rate revenue helps fund the services Maroondah City Council provides to ratepayers and residents. This revenue is collected through charging rates to the owner or occupier of every property in the municipality. Council aims to charge ratepayers equitably - by using property values to fairly distribute rates charges.


Property values are assessed by a general valuation of the municipality. The value of your property is assessed as the Capital Improved Value, which is the total market value of the land plus buildings and other improvements.

The market valuation of all properties occurs on the same date and is conducted by qualified valuers every two years. Valuers analyse recent sales and leasings and take into account individual characteristics of properties.

How your rates are calculated

Council rates and charges are issued in July/August each year. The notice shows the values of the property and the amount due in rates. Rates are calculated by multiplying the rate in the dollar (an amount set by Council in its annual budget planning) by the Capital Improved Value of the individual property.
