Generally, if an objection has not been lodged there is very little recourse to have the valuation changed or amended.
The Municipal Property Rates Act does provide that in certain cases a supplementary valuation can be compiled by the local municipality:
(refer to section 78 of the Act)
Supplementary valuations are permissable under the following circumstances:-
Properties not included in the valuation roll
Incorporated into the municipality after the last general valuation (changes to demarcated boundaries)
New subdivisions or consolidations
The market value of the property has substantially increased or decreased, eg.
- New buildings
- Demolitions or destruction of buildings
Substantially incorrect valuation
Revaluation required due to exceptional circumstances such as natural disaster.

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