Municipal Valuation Objection










The City of Tshwane has released its 2020 General Valuation Roll for the period of 01 July 2020 to 30 June 2024 for public inspection and objection until 26 June 2020.

But what does this mean for you as a property owner and rate payer?
A General Valuation Roll must reflect the correct market value of your property, as this is used as the basis for which the Municipality calculates your rates and taxes each month (Municipal Property Rates Act 6 of 2004, Section 30(2) and (3)). Your particular rate is achieved by multiplying the municipal valuation of your property by the tariff that applies to the category it is placed in. Depending on a number of factors, this rate may stay the same, increase or decrease from the previous roll.

It is your responsibility as a rate payer to inspect the General Valuation Roll. This can be done via the City of Tshwane’s website as well as at their various municipal offices.

Every property should have a municipal valuation ascribed to it. The value of your property will appear on the General Valuation Roll notice received from the Municipality. If you did not receive a notice, phone 012 358 9999 or 080 111 1556 (toll free) or register on the website.

When should I lodge an Objection?
Section 49 of the Act allows you to lodge an Objection on the General Valuation Roll according to any of the following if they were incorrectly listed on the roll:

• Property description
• Stand number or portion number
• Category
• Size
• Owner
• Market value of property
Why should I object?
If any of the above details are incorrect, it could have a negative influence on your rates. For example, if the municipal valuation is too high or if the category is incorrectly assigned, you will likely pay higher than normal rates. The onus is therefore on you to check that your property details are correct.

You may object to any information incorrectly displayed on the valuation roll, if you are able to support the Objection with a reason and the necessary evidential documentation. The Objection will then be considered by a Municipal Valuer. If the Municipality finds the Objection valid, it will revalue and/or re-categorise the property. If the outcome is unsatisfactory an Appeal (Section 54(a)) may be lodged.
