The Valuation Tribunal commenced hearing appeals remotely (online) since July 2020. Where both parties are in agreement that the appeal can be heard remotely (without need for a physical hearing in the Tribunal Offices), the Chairperson of the Tribunal may assign your appeal to be heard remotely.

While not all appeals lend themselves to being heard remotely (some have legal issues involved which require larger volumes of evidence), the Tribunal endeavors to facilitate parties that wish to have their appeal heard remotely, with a view to reducing travel time for parties and having regard to the limited number of physical hearing rooms in our offices.
