Stellenbosch Municipality: Objection to valuation of value of property

MARIEKE DU TOIT

The majority of property owners within the Stellenbosch Municipal Area recently received the latest valuation particulars in respect of their properties published on the General Valuations Roll in terms of the Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Act, 2004 (Act 6 of 2004). The Property Rates will be calculated and payable on the new valuations from 1 July 2021 and will be valid for four years. The higher valuation may mean higher property rates, but not necessarily at the same percentage by which the valuation of property increased.

Property owners may object to the valuation by completing and submitting the objection form by 15 January 2021 at the Valuations Department of the Stellenbosch Municipality or electronically at valuations@stellenbosch.gov.za.

The following link provides more information and timelines for the implementation of the new valuation roll:

All applications for property rates rebates for the 2021/2022 financial year must be submitted by no later than 30 November 2020 at the Rates Section of the Municipality. The application forms and details of supplementary documentation can be accessed via the following link:
