Christchurch City Council rating values - general revaluation

Rating Valuations for all properties in Christchurch have been updated by Quotable Value (an independent valuer contracted by the Council). These new 2022 Rating Valuations will be used as the base for rates charges from 1 July 2023 until 30 June 2026. Changes reflect the likely market sale prices as at 1 August 2022. 

Rating Valuations must be updated every three years so the amount each property is charged in rates relates to market values. This General Revaluation does not affect the total amount in rates collected by the Council, but it does affect how much is paid by each property.
