Make sure your property valuation is correct

LOCAL residents have until the end of March to inspect and object, if necessary, to the valuations in its third General Valuation Roll. The roll, has been open for inspection and objection from February 10.

The last property valuation roll was done in 2012. Durban North ward councillor, Shaun Ryley, urged residents to check their valuations.

“Ratepayers need to determine whether the valuation attributed is a correct reflection of the property. If this amount it is higher than the actual value of their property then they will be paying proportionally higher rates on it. Property owners have until 31 March to lodge objections before the valuation roll is confirmed. Once this process is complete residents will have very little recourse, if any, to object to the value ascribed until the next valuation is done in four years’ time,” he said.

A link to the valuation roll is available on the eThekwini municipality’s website.
