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 amongst others.
Cllr 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 28 April 2017.
"Residents must please note that the process is
legislated which means we will not be able to accept late
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,” Cllr Odendaal
Objections forms are obtainable at all Customer Care Centres or on
our website at www.nelsonmandelabay.gov.za.
The General Valuation Roll for the period 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2021
