Check property details for valuation roll

2017-03-09 11:54

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is currently in the process of distributing General Valuation Roll notices to individual property owners as prescribed by the Municipal Property Rates Act.

These notices contain details such as the municipal value of a property and its description among others.

Councillor Retief Odendaal, Member of the Mayoral Committee for Budget and Treasury, said, “This will give the owners of the more than 260 000 Nelson Mandela Bay properties an opportunity to make sure the details captured on the General Valuation Roll 2017 are correct or that nothing is omitted.

“If the information is not correct an opportunity is now available to ensure that objections are either lodged regarding your own property or that of someone else before or on April 28, 2017.

“Residents must please note that the process is legislated which means we will not be able to accept late notices.

“In terms of Section 50(2) Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Act No. 6 of 2004, an objection must be in relation to a specific individual property and not against the General Valuation Roll as such,” Odendaal said.

Objection forms are obtainable at all the Customer Care Centres or on the website

The General Valuation Roll for the period July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2021 is open for public inspection at the office of the Chief Financial Officer, Ground Floor, Mfanasekhaya Gqobose Building, Govan Mbeki Avenue, Port Elizabeth, for the period March 1 to April 28, 2017, Mondays to Fridays, from 8am to 4pm, as well as on the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s website.

Completed objection forms must be returned to the City Manager, Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, Valuation Roll, P.O. Box 834, Port Elizabeth, 6000.

Alternatively, they may be handed in at any municipal Customer Care Centre.
