A general valuation roll is required to be undertaken at least once every 4 years in terms of the Municipal Property Rates Act No 6 of 2004 (MPRA).

Our official Data Collectors and Valuers will be doing inspections and gathering information of property in your area from February 2017 to December 2018 for valuation related purposes as contemplated in Section 41 of the MPRA. This entails, amongst other things, the measuring of buildings and taking photographs where necessary. These Officials can be identified by their ID cards with photograph and they will be wearing a reflector vest with the Sol Plaatje Municipal logo. Our Officials will only be conducting these inspections during working hours (week days 07H45 – 16H30 and Saturdays 08H00-13H00) unless specific arrangements have been made with the owner. Section 41 of the MPRA states that we may inspect a property between 07H30 and 19H00 on any day except a Sunday or public holiday. You can also contact the Valuations Office at 053 - 8306071 to verify the employee.

Please do not let anyone purporting to be an official from the Sol Plaatje Municipality Valuation Section onto your property unless they have the required identification.

The more information gathered the better the valuation process will be. We plead with the community to please cooperate with our employees to ensure the information received is correct.
