I have been looking at a Development Application (DA) submitted in Chisholm that includes the required valuation for changing the use clause on the lease. The DA is to create a dual occupancy on the block – current valuation $365k. If the change is approved the valuer reckons the value of the property will go up by $5000. Does this sound right? Common sense dictates that being allowed to put two dwellings on one block makes it much more valuable.
Now before you give me your answer consider this…
There is also a DA in to increase floor space (by about 400m2) in an office block on London Crt CIVIC. Coincidentally their valuation also increased 5 grand from $103,560,000 to $103,565,000! Surely being able to let a further 400m2 of space will increase the value of the property by more than 5k?
Can anyone shed light on how all this works?
Given that there is a 75% tax on the increase is the ACT being dudded out of serious revenue here?
