Property valuations on the go

23 September 2021 | Local News

Walvis Bay mayor Trevino Forbes informed residents of the harbour town that the municipality is currently in the process of conducting the five-yearly general valuation of all properties within the town’s jurisdiction.

“Section 66 (2) (b) of the Local Authorities Act prescribes that there shall be a general valuation of all rateable properties at intervals of not more than five years.”

Forbes explained that for this purpose, Lyapi Real Estates Properties and Trading CC, an appraiser that has been endorsed by the Master of the High, has appointed.

“This is a team of young, qualified valuators and by using them, the municipality also contributes to the empowerment of our youth. They have commenced with the valuation process, which entails a physical inspection of each property.”

He said that the valuation team was issued with appointment letters containing each valuators’ name, identity number and photograph, as well as a municipal identification card. This must be shown when they present themselves at any property for the valuation inspection.

The mayor called on residents to allow them access to their property to do the required inspections and measurements.

However, the mayor emphasised that the inside of any residential house is not valued and therefore the valuators do not need access to the inside of any house.

He reminded residents that it is a criminal offence under section 67 (6) of the Act to hinder or obstruct the valuator in this exercise and in the performance of their duties, calling on residents to provide their full cooperation.

Forbes also announced that council is in the process of organising public meetings in all three suburbs before the year end.
