Pre-Roll Consultation

Pre-Roll Consultation

What is Pre-Roll Consultation?

Pre-roll consultation is an opportunity for property owners or their agents to receive draft assessed value information prior to the release of the Assessment Roll in January.  Pre-roll consultation can lead to more certainty for next year’s property assessment and help owner’s budget for the upcoming tax year.

The pre-roll consultation process is relatively simple:

  1. In the fall, (typically September) the owner or agent for the owner requests BC Assessment provide draft assessed values for properties they own or represent.
  2. A draft property valuation will be sent to the owner/agent in the first two weeks of November or earlier.
  3. With the draft valuation in hand, pre-roll consultation allows both BC Assessment and owners/agents to exchange relevant market and property information for the upcoming completed assessment roll. Information, such as, but not limited to rents (rent rolls or leases), expenses (income and expense statements), vacancy (rent rolls), and sales information is often exchanged.

This process allows the property owner/agent to have input and provide feedback in the upcoming assessed values. The intent of the pre-roll discussion is to lead to a higher acceptance and understanding of the upcoming assessed values. Although the draft assessments that result from pre-roll discussions and the completed January property assessment can sometimes be different, the pre-roll discussion process can help to minimize variances and lead to increased property tax certainty.  If you have any questions about the pre-roll consultation process, please email customerrelations@bcassessment.ca.

Pre-Roll PVS Requests

In order to facilitate pre-roll consultations, BC Assessment provides Property Value Summaries (PVS) to owners and their representatives prior to the completion of the 2018 roll. This year's process is the same as last year.

The process for the 2018 Assessment Roll is as follows:

  • Send your list of folios that you would like to receive PVS reports for, by September 22, 2017 to connect@bcassessment.ca. Late requests may be able to be accommodated up to October 2, 2017.
  • The format of your list must be in the prescribed format in an Excel spreadsheet with Area, Jurisdiction, and Roll Number in separate columns. For complete details, visit our website here.
  • The subject line of your request MUST read: COMPANY NAME 2018 Roll PVS Request.
  • Ensure that you provide BC Assessment with a single, large request as opposed to several smaller requests that must then be grouped together.
  • You must also submit a declaration that you represent the property owner of all properties submitted in your request. For an example of a declaration, visit our website here. BC Assessment will review the requests to ensure compliance.
  • Your PVS reports will be available on or before October 13, 2017 reflecting values as of the week of October 9, 2017 for the following property types only:
    • Most Coordinated properties (Casinos, Seniors Living, Major Retail, Specialized Vancouver Office Buildings)
    • Properties no longer at their highest and best use
    • Vacant properties
  • The remainder of the properties on your list, as well as any requests received after October 2, 2017, will have PVS reports available at Preview Roll in early November, and again for Completed Roll in December 2017.
  • If you have any questions about the PVS reports you have received, please call 1-866-valueBC (825-8322) and the appropriate extension to contact the BC Assessment appraiser responsible for the property type below.
