Okafor, B. N.


This research dealt with the analysis of tenement rating particularly, it dealt with the problems encountered in the administration of tenement rating in Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State. The following are involved: tenement assessment, publication of valuation list, issuing of demand notice, levying of tax, billing and collection for an effective administration of tenement rating; these activities must be carried out adequately, but the reverse has been the case. In the course of this project, relevant literature were reviewed. Data were collected through the use of interview questionnaires and the result was subjected to different statistical techniques and presented in tables, bars and percentages. The findings of this study are that inadequate training is given to the staffs in the valuation unit of the government secretariat which makes them unqualified and incompetent to carry out tenement rating. Rate collection drive requires good transportation facilities for mobility but it is hampered due to inadequate provision of transportation facilities. As a result, some suggestions were made that tenement rating administration requires qualified and competent management as such the staff should be properly trained on rating valuation principles. Estate surveyors and valuers as professionals and experts should be left to handle tenement rating since they are the only one that can handle it properly. In conclusion, it abounds in tenement rating administration. However, if adequate caution is made, it would be properly arranged.
