DOING VALUATIONS UNDER LEVEL 4 OF THE RISK ADJUSTED STRATEGY DURING COVID-19
There are various circumstances during which valuers may have to perform valuations from 1 May 2020 during Level 4 of the RSA government’s Risk Adjusted Strategy. As South Africa progresses towards Level 1 and into the normal situation, the valuer’s engagement will increase and revert to normality.
It is imperative to study provisions of the document titled RSA Level Description- Schedule of Services- Framework for Sectors published 25 April 2020, and the Disaster Management Act, 2002 (Act No. 57 0f 2002), Regulations issued in terms of Section 27(2) of the Disaster Management Act, 2002 published 29 April 2020 by the Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs and any latest amendments.
Category H9 of the Regulations refers to Business and Financial Services. It states that “(o)ther professional services may operate only where work-from-home is not possible, and only to support other Alert Level 4 services.”. Also, see Categories A, D and O which refer to Agriculture, Construction and government services (all spheres of government).
