From the President's Desk

This is probably the most challenging president’s letter I have ever written as we sit in our extended lockdown. It has been hard to watch the world suffering in the way that it has been, from both the Covid-19 virus and the effect of the preventative measures on everyone’s businesses.







From the GM's Office

“The world is going through a period of crisis, but whether we look at it as a crisis or as an opportunity to reshape our thinking, depends on us. So use this period as a lesson on how to live life with a concern for all of humankind.”
―  Abhijit Naskar, neuroscientist and best-selling author



The effect of COvid-19 on Valuations

I have been involved in many discussions over the past few weeks on the effect of COVID19 on the values of the properties.

The initial discussions were around that the rental holiday that would be applied or would be amortised into the tenure of the lease. However, since then tenants are requesting to only pay 20% of their rentals and in some instances the tenants are refusing to pay the rental and the operational costs as well.




Featuring some of our Mentorship Programme mentees

The SAIV Mentorship Programme is targeted at 3rd year students studying towards a Property Valuation or related course at an Institution accredited by SACPVP, as well as Candidate Valuers who may have completed their studies and require Mentorship together with experiential learning. We highlight some of the mentees who are currently taking part in the mentorship programme.


SAIV Branch Executives 2020

The South African Institute of Valuers branches held their Annual General Meetings (AGMs) in March 2020 where a new leadership was elected. In this article we showcase the leadership.


Covid-19and the Valuation profession

We are living through one of the most challenging and uncertain times in recent history.  As the global Covid-19 pandemic advances, governments, scientists, healthcare professionals, businesses and the public at large are having to respond in real time to new and often untested information and advice. The challenges ahead apply to every aspect of society.




Community Schemes and the Coronavirus

In his address to the South African people on Sunday, the 15th of March, President Cyril Ramaphosa stressed the fact that the world is facing a medical emergency far graver than what we have experienced in over a century, and declared a National State of Emergency. The current set of circumstances around the world have conspired to springboard us all into action. The onslaught, which is the 7th type of Coronavirus, has changed the way we think, engage and conduct our daily lives.
