“Revaluation” refers to the carrying out by the Valuation Office of a new valuation of every relevant property in a particular rating authority area. The legal provisions which govern this are set out in Part 5 of the Valuation Acts 2001 – 2015. Essentially, the process commences when the Commissioner of Valuation makes a statutory order and the process results in the publication of a list containing the valuations of all properties therein.
All local authorities are being revalued under a National Revaluation Programme which is well underway. To date, revaluation has been completed in Dublin City Council, Fingal, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, South Dublin, Limerick City and County and Waterford City and County rating authority areas. The stage of the programme, currently underway is the revaluation of commercial and industrial properties in Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Leitrim, Longford, Offaly, Roscommon, Sligo, South Dublin and Westmeath County Councils.
