Land Valuation Tribunal:
High Court Appointment
Expressions of Interest are now open for Registered Valuers with extensive professional experience in urban land valuation (not location specific), as an additional member for appointment to the High Court to assist it in determining appeals and other matters submitted under the Land Valuation Proceedings Act (1948) or other relevant Acts.
The person ultimately appointed is required to sit with the Justice who will rely upon the valuer’s technical knowledge in order to draw conclusions and consider evidence. Some preparation before each case is required.
The Ministry of Justice advises that despite the 5-year term of appointment, the workload is optimistically detailed as 2 – 3 cases per annum, but in recent years a lot have settled before they progressed as far as a hearing. Therefore, as a result, appointees are only typically required very occasionally.
The document available HERE
provides a Position Description containing remuneration details, appointment criteria, and workload expectations. A three-page Expression of Interest in Appointment document, incorporating Statutory Declaration is also included. EOI’s are to be forwarded directly to the Ministry of Justice (details as provided on the Position Description).
The Ministry of Justice are wanting to make an appointment as soon as possible in time for commencement in 2022.
