Applying for residential tariffs for Property Owners who are billed at a business rates tariffs

PROPERTY owners who are being billed at a business property rate tariff can now apply to the City’s rates and taxes department to be charged at residential rates.

Property owners will need to apply in writing to benefit from the new rates, and will also need to indicate that the property in question is being used solely for residential purposes.

Council rates are determined by the rights accorded to a property in terms of zoning or permitted use as laid out in town planning schemes. Properties are zoned as a whole and not on the use of any particular building or portion of a building on a property.

The City’s rates policy stipulates that properties be rated according to the highest tariff applicable to the permitted use. Property zoned to permit a mix of commercial and residential usage is therefore rated in the business category.

Changes have been made to the City’s rates policy, which means that residential property owners can benefit from paying lower rates. Amendments to the rates policy of the City allows used only for residential purposes but zoned as Business general, special, undetermined to apply to be rated in terms of the residential tariff with full residential benefits.

The new tariff will be charged from date of application.
