Beware of some valuation schemes

The valuation of Kouga properties is set to commence this month.

And in the light of this, Kouga Municipality cautions property owners against schemes aimed at making money out of residents during this time.

One such scheme, that has emerged, are offers by individuals or businesses to assist residents to object to their new property valuations – in exchange for an upfront payment of R1000.

Residents are advised against making use of these schemes. If you wish to object to the new valuation of your property, the process is simple to follow and is free of charge. You do not need to pay anything.

The new valuation roll is being compiled by DDP Valuers and will be presented to the Kouga Council by the end of January 2014. At this time property owners will be invited to inspect the new roll and to object to the valuations of their properties should they believe the valuation to be unreasonable.
