Valuation at Ngwenya, Swaziland

Africa / Cadastral / Chartered Land Survey / Land Registration / Swaziland

DATE: 2005

A new highway was being constructed from Oshoek border post to Mbabane. An existing filling station along the old road was separated from the main flow of traffic. The Government valuer did not take this into account when they calculated compensation for the land actually taken. Robinson Bertram Lawyers asked us to survey the affected land, produce plans showing egress and ingress from the filling station and to quantify the impact the new road was having on the original business turn over. This was done and presented by Mr de Beer and the client’s legal team to the Ministry of Natural Resources who oversaw the additi

onal claims. The original valuation for compensation was adjusted by over four times the value.
