Why appoint a registered property valuer?

“A Property Valuer is a registered professional who has been educated and trained to determine the value of fixed property, execute feasibility studies and provide expert advice on property-related matters. The Property Valuer requires a combination of a number of professional qualities and capabilities, and needs a thorough knowledge and understanding of the interacting influences which create, maintain or diminish the value of property or rights thereto. The Property Valuer does not invent value, but interprets market forces which determine the value. We are proudly registered with the SACPVP and SAIV regulating bodies.”

The South African Council for Property Valuers (SACPVP)

Was established on 1 January 1983 by section 2 of the Valuers Act, 1982 (Act No. 23 of 1982). On 31 August 2001, the Council was replaced by the SA Council for the Property Valuers Profession established by section 2 of The Property Valuers Profession Act, 2000. The Council’s main functions are:

  • Registration of Professional Valuers, Professional Associated Valuers and Candidate Valuers;
  • Maintenance of their integrity and inhancement of their status;
  • Improvement of their academic and other qualifications and of the standard of services rendered by them;
  • Protection of members of the public in their dealings with registered persons; 
  • Drawing up and keeping up to date a register of all registered persons.

The South African Institute of Property Valuers (SAIV)

Is the national society of professional real estate valuers. It was founded in 1909, almost 100 years ago. The Institute is dedicated to serving the public interest by advancing high standards for members of the appraisal profession. As the representative body of the profession in Southern Africa, the Institute promotes excellence by:

  • Setting and maintaining high standards of professional proficiency, ethics and education;
  • Providing appropriate educational programmes, sources of data and information;
  • Marketing and creating awareness of the benefits of the professional services of its members to clients and
  • Monitoring and making representations on legislation in the best interests of its members and their clients.

Rhino Picture

We are proud supporters of the World Wildlife Fund and their fight in the protection of Rhino’s​

WWF plays a vital role in the fight to protect rhinos. With nearly 60 years of experience, they know that successful rhino conservation requires a comprehensive approach that brings together the world’s leading experts to develop global strategies to save and recover these species.

WWF secures and protects rhino populations and establishes new populations through translocations—the process of moving rhinos from parks with significant populations to others that historically held rhinos but currently do not.
