Depreciation Table

The depreciation table below may be used during hearings to assist in valuing property that is not new.  Items that are older than their useful life will generally be given no value.  The landlord or tenant may provide evidence of the condition of the property, past use or any other relevant fact or circumstance to suggest that a different life expectancy, or different remaining life expectancy, should be used in any particular case, and that the value of the property is correspondingly more or less than that indicated by the remaining life expectancy.

For example, evidence that property was not used, or only lightly used, prior to occupancy, or was a high quality product, may be relevant to suggest that the life of the property is longer than the remaining life determined from the table, and that the remaining value was correspondingly higher.   Evidence of heavy use or a low quality product may suggest a shorter life expectancy and lower value.
