Darwin, Northern Territory 0800

The Unimproved Capital Value (UCV) is the amount land alone is expected to sell for without any improvements.  The UCV is determined by reviewing the property market, recording and analysing sales in the relevant local area to determine how much the land alone would be worth.  The UCV considers similar sales in the market, trends, supply and demand and the land's current use and zoning.

The role of the Valuer General's office is to administer and provide fair and transparent land values and to offer specialist valuation and property advice to the government.

Richard Langshaw, the Valuer-General for the Northern Territory will present the Unimproved Capital Valuation process and outcomes with presentations from key valuers involved in the valuation of the following regions:

  • Litchfield Council presented by Emma Jackson - Certified Practising Valuer AAPI - Valuations NT
  • Pastoral presented by Frank Peacocke - Certified Practising Valuer AAPI - Herron Todd White

Each valuer will provide a 30-minute presentation of the process and outcomes for each region together with a general market update on each region.  There will also be an opportunity for the audience to interact with the valuation panel via a Q&A session at the end of the presentations.

This is a great opportunity for members and non-members to learn more about the process and outcomes of the UCV process within the Northern Territory.  Networking opportunity with light refreshments will commence on completion of the presentations and Q&A.
