Time to check the municipal value of your property

Valuation roll now ready for inspection

Property owners in George are encouraged to check the municipal value of their properties to ensure they are being charged the correct rates.

George Municipality Finance Director Keith Jordaan said municipalities were required by law to update their General Valuation Roll every four years, a process which was initiated last June. “Following data collection and verification, the roll is now available for public inspection at 14 points across the municipal area as well as on the municipal website.

“It is very important that owners check their valuations as it will affect the rates they pay on their own properties as well as the overall rate value calculations for the city. There are a few factors that can affect an evaluation – for instance, a smaller house in an area where there are mostly large homes may be over-valuated, or a house in a good area may have lower value because the inside is in bad condition,” said Mr Jordaan.

The public has until 9 March 2018 to inspect and lodge objections pertaining to a specific property if necessary.

The way to lodge an objection is prescribed by legislation and will only be considered if submitted on the correct objection form and completed clearly and correctly in ink.  Objection forms for the various categories of properties  - namely residential (Form A), non-residential/business (Form B) and agricultural properties (Form C) – are available from service points indicated below and on the municipal website.

Any objector may only object to an individual property and not to the entire valuation roll. If a person represents an owner of a property, a copy of the proof /resolution in this regard must be attached to the form. Objection forms submitted to the municipality after 9 March 2018 will not be considered. Objectors who have supplied correct contact details on the objection forms will be contacted and physical assessments of properties arranged.
