Property owners in Nairobi will start paying higher rates once a new valuation roll is implemented by the county government.
City Hall is replacing the current valuation roll, which was last updated in 1982.
A valuation roll is a public legal document that contains information on all ratable property within the boundaries of a county or urban centre.
According to Urban Planning and Lands Executive Charles Kerich, property owners will see the rates they have been paying go up with the implementation of the new valuation roll.
Under the current roll, rates are levied as a percentage of the property value. Property owners currently pay 25 per cent of the 1982 property value.
