Provisional rates amounts can be checked now
Auckland ratepayers will receive their rates notice for the 2013-14 rating year from 1 August but can see provisional rates amounts now.
This is the second year of Auckland’s 3-year move to a single rating system intended to equalise rates by value& use throughout the region.
The overall increase averages 2.9% across all property types & areas. The transitional caps mean most residential & farm/lifestyle properties can rise is 10%, and the most they can fall is 2.5%.
A new page introduced to The Bob Dey Property Report last year, Propbd on Q has resumed appearing daily, hence fresh cut. It will, in essence, be a running commentary on the day’s news – focusing on property & business around Auckland, NZ securities and emanating from Auckland Council.
Items will be brief, with links to outside sources where quickly available, and with links to previous stories on this site. Many of the items will take the place of stories (which have frequently ended up uncompleted); some will link to stories the same day and some, such as auctions & court liquidations, will be expanded into more detailed stories.
