Opteon is Rotorua Lakes Council independent valuation service provider. As such, we will be completing the 2020 general revaluation with new Valuation Notices being issued in early January 2021. Due to the impact of COVID-19 and the nationwide lockdown earlier this year, the revaluation has been pushed back with the effective date of the new valuation now being 1 September 2020.

Opteon will be completing property inspections on those which have recently sold and where significant building work has been undertaken. The valuation field work will be undertaken between August and November 2020.

To ensure that the revaluation programme is undertaken as accurately as possible, we are requesting property owners of commercial, industrial, rural, accommodation and childcare centres to fill out the revaluation questionnaires accessed via the link below. In the past, you will have received these via post, however given the impacts of COVID-19 we have converted these into a web based platform to minimise contact and ensure ease of return. We encourage all property owners to fill out and return these questionnaires to ensure that Opteon has up to date and accurate information regarding your property. This information will assist in the determination of value and assess any impact that COVID-19 may have had on your property’s value.

More specifically, any information relating to change in rentals, vacancy rates, leases or any other factors that you consider to impact the value of your business and property is considered extremely relevant.

This information is requested under authority of the Rating Valuations Act 1998, Section 45.  Any information you provide is subject to the Official Information Act and the Privacy Act and, therefore, is confidential to Opteon for the sole purpose of assessing the rating values. No individual property data will be provided to any third party.

Please click on the relevant property type to complete the Rotorua Lakes Council revaluation form.

Please note, if you have already provided this information via Council’s website then there is no need to complete the above forms.

If you have any questions regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact our team at info.revaluationsnz@opteonsolutions.com.
