Netherlands Council for Real Estate Assessment (Waarderingskamer)

The Netherlands Council for Real Estate Assessment is an independent organization that supervises and monitors valuation in the context of the Special Act for Real Estate Assessment. If municipalities do not meet the minimum quality standards as set by the organization, it is initially the municipal council which will be held accountable. If the necessary improvements are not being realized, the Minister of Finance may, in extreme cases, decide to have this Act executed by another party instead of by the municipality.

The organization plays a role as both, an oversight agency and a center of knowledge and expertise in the field of real estate valuation and property taxation.
