PROPERTY RATES INCREASE: YOU CAN OBJECT

The City of Cape Town updates the general valuation roll every three years to assess and adjust as necessary the current worth of immovable property within its jurisdiction. If the value of immovable property is adjusted upwards, it may result in an increased rates liability for the property owner.

The City has now commenced receiving objections to the Supplementary Valuation Roll of 2018, and the window for objections closes on 11 September 2020.

If you are of the opinion that amended market value does not reflect the reasonable market value of your property, it is well-advised to raise an objection, in person, or online on the City’s website. To assist you, you can access your property valuation here

The objection process can become onerous and technical. Let STBB’s expertise manage this important process on your behalf.
