A Valuation review application is the Rates Watch name for the objection process outside of the normal objection process. The manner in which the MPRA prescribes the handling of these applications is also different.

Rates Watch starts the process with the same actions as what will be required to lodge a successful objection. We will start with the normal screening process to determine if there are sufficient grounds to lodge an objection/application. Once we have an outcome that suggest grounds for an objection, we will inform you of the outcome of the screening process. Once you have agreed with the outcome and instruct Rates Watch to proceed, we will be able to submit an valuation review application on your behalf.

A valuation review is only possible in certain prescribed instances and falls outside the normal objection process. If you have not yet applied for screening for the relevant property - please do so first by clicking here.

Rates Watch will undertake the following on your behalf:

Screen the valuation of your property

  • Inform you of the outcome of the screening process

  • Prepare a motivated valuation review application

  • Lodge the valuation review application with the relevant municipality

  • Obtain proof of the submission of the valuation review application

  • Monitor the normal mail for a decision by the municipal valuer

  • Inform you regularly of steps taken to ensure a speedy decision by the municipal valuer

  • Monitor the published supplementary valuation rolls for the inclusion of the property

  • Inform you once the property is included

  • Analyze the entry and consider a possible objection

  • Recommend whether an objection should be lodged and

  • Once an objection is submitted, the process follows the normal objection/appeals process.

IF YOU DO NOT LODGE AN OBJECTION TO AN INCORRECT VALUATION ENTRY, YOU FORFEIT THE RIGHT OF PAYING PROPERTY RATES ON A CORRECT VALUATION.

IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO APPLY.

Please be aware that all prices quoted do not include fees levied by the Municipality.
