Quotable Value (QV), an independent valuation service, sets the rating values for Porirua City properties every three years. It works out their value by looking at the sale prices of surrounding properties and the value of building consents in the area. The valuations are a snapshot of the market as at 1 September in the year of revaluation.

The 2016 revaluation resulted in the largest increase in Porirua City property rating values since 2007. The revaluation redistributes the rates across the city’s rateable properties but does not increase the total rates.
The changes from this revaluation take effect from 1 July 2017.
The property rating values have changed by different percentages, both individually and within sectors. This means properties with a higher percentage increase in rating value than the average increase will have a higher percentage rates increase than the average property. Properties that have a lower percentage increase in rating value will have a lower percentage rates increase than the average property.
If you don’t agree with the rating value for your property, you can object in writing.
