Land valuation increases.

Delayed post owing to Blogger maintenance shutdown.

One of the bugbears of the average ratepayer is the never ending increases in the valuations of our properties for local authority rating purposes. Recently I was notified that my valuation had increased by around 40% in a matter of a couple of years. I didn’t realize we were such bloody good land speculators when we bought it.

Normally councils lower their percentage in line with the increases, (they still screw a bit more out of us every time,) but this time they are all crying poor. Watch them jack it up, and blame the state government.

A mate of mine sent me an email with the following satirical take on the matter. It is reasonably accurate, but just at the moment I am not laughing:

Your House

As seen by your buyer:

As seen by your lender:

As seen by the bank's surveyor:

As seen by your Council Rate Assessor:
