General and supplementary valuations<h2 class="sectHeading">About general valuations</h2><p>The GVR gives the market value of a property on a certain date. It applies to all properties in Cape Town and is used to calculate the monthly rates that property owners are required to pay for general services such as street lighting, parks, libraries and fire services.</p> <span> <div class="infographic bg-font-adjust-bg">​​​​​​​​​​ <figure><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="" /></figure><figcaption> <p> <span class="infoGraphicSpan">GENERAL AND SUPPLEMENTRY VALUATIONS</span><br>​​<strong>FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS</strong></p> <a title="title" class="btn dark-blue" href="" target="_blank"><i class="icon download"></i>Download PDF</a> </figcaption> </div></span> <p>The City is legally required to produce a GVR at least once every four years.
