Your application for registration will pass through the first four stages, as outlined below, but may pass up to six stages.
Stage 1: Application
Applications will only be accepted in hard copy, and once your application is submitted it will be reviewed internally for completeness.
Stage 2: Assessment
The supplied information is assessed against the mandatory requirements for registration. At this stage we will initiate contact with the references outlined in your application and you may be required to supply further information.
If your application is straight forward, you will be contacted with regards to arranging your oral examination before the Board. Your four sample valuation reports will be disseminated amongst relevant Members of the Board for assessment of your competency to value land in Queensland.
You are encouraged to be diligent with your application and the reports submitted as amendments to your reports will only be facilitated in exceptional circumstances.
Stage 3: Interview/oral examination before the Board
The Board will consider your four sample valuation reports, in addition to the interview conducted in making determination on your competency to value land in Queensland. It is expected that you are particularly familiar with the contents of the reports, and during the interview, able to explain all workings, including rationale of value, comparable sales evidence and methodology adopted.
It is also expected that you are able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of valuation principles and techniques, and are familiar with professional standards imposed by the Valuers Registration Act 1992, Valuers Registration Regulation 2013 and other relevant laws to the profession.
Stage 4: Registration or request to resubmit and/or reinterview before the Board
If the Board grants your registration, your registration is finalised upon receipt of any outstanding payments and relevant letters and certificates will be prepared and sent to you.
If the Board requests that you resubmit sample valuation reports and/or reinterview before the Board, you will be provided with adequate time to facilitate reviews and will be contacted to arrange for reinterview (if required).
Stage 5: Refusal of registration
If the Board rejects your application, you will be informed and may elect for the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal to review the decision.
Stage 6: Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal
For information on the jurisdiction of the Tribunal to review decisions of the Board, visit the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal website.
If your submission to the Board is not received within a reasonable period, the application is closed as being withdrawn and incomplete.
