In a situation whereby the property owner received the Tenement rate demand notice and has made payment before receiving the Land Use charge demand notice for the first time, the amount paid should be deducted from the Land Use Charge (if the Land Use Charge is higher than the Tenement rate,) then pay the outstanding balance. All evidence of payment including payment of Tenement rate should be forwarded to our office. However, where Land Use Charge demand notice is received before any of the consolidated charges i.e. tenement rate, ground rent and neighborhood improvement charges, Land use charge should be paid as it covers all these rates and charges. See section 22 of the Land Use Charge law, number 11 of 2001.
