Validity of the Valuation Roll
VALUATIONS are made continuously, whenever new properties are created or new townships are declared, or when it is required as prescribed by the MPRA.
These changes to the General Valuation Roll are effected in supplementary valuation rolls, and the same process is followed as for a general valuation roll. The date of valuation always remains fixed until a new general valuation roll replaces the current one.
A valuation roll is valid for four years.
Your rates will, therefore, be calculated on the same value for the four-year period, unless changes have been made that may affect the property’s value. A municipality may decide to produce general valuation rolls more frequently.
With the development of new properties, these changes are recorded and new properties valued and included in the property database.
Objection to the Figures
YOU are entitled to challenge the property value or, for that matter, any entry in the General Valuation Roll.
However, the General Valuation Roll has been finalised and advertised in compliance with legislation. Changes to the roll are only possible through a formal legal process.
You are entitled to object to:
Any omissions; Incorrect information, such as the address, the owner, the unit number, et cetera;
Incorrect value; and Other owners’ property information.
Paying rates during an objection
You are still liable to pay your property rates during the objection process.
