No easy answer to unpaid Māori land rates
13 Jan 2012

Property owners in the Gisborne district will find out their new rating valuation next week when revaluation notices are posted out. Values have dropped on average by 10% but there are variations throughout the district. Because the last revaluation was in 2008, at the height of the property boom, some decreases are significant. This does not mean rates will go down or that properties will be selling for cheaper prices. Read more >>
