Deadline extended for valuation roll objections

The deadline for eThekwini residents to submit objections to the General Valuation Roll has been extended to 16 May.

A report, tabled at the executive committee meeting on Tuesday, 25 April, stated that the initial closing date for objections was 31 March.

The period was then extended to 2 May before being extended by another two weeks.

In terms of the Municipality Property Rates Act, municipalities are required to revalue properties every four years for rating purposes.

eThekwini Municipality advertised the third General Valuation Roll on 10 February. The Act requires that the roll must be open for inspection for not less than 30 days from the date of the last advertisement.

eThekwini Mayor, Zandile Gumede said they have worked hard to ensure the valuations were a fair and transparent process. She said residents who were unhappy after inspecting the roll had the opportunity to lodge an objection, as well as an appeal.

City staff members are situated on the ground floor of the building at 75 Dr Langalibalele Street to accept objection forms and deal with any queries arising from the valuation process.

Objection forms may also be handed in at any of eThekwini Municipality’s Sizakala Centres or can be scanned and emailed to [email protected].

Valuations may be inspected via the city’s website www.durban.gov.za.
