Council Tax valuation bands

Most domestic property, owned or rented, has a Council Tax band. Your home has been allocated one of eight bands according to its market value at 1st April 1991.

The price of your home today is not a good guide as to what your band should be.

Your bill states which band applies to your home.

The Valuation Office Agency is responsible for setting the bands for Council Tax properties and the rateable values for non-domestic properties.

If you wish to appeal against your banding or rateable value you should contact the valuation office (external link) and not the council. You must continue to pay your existing bill while you are waiting for the results of an appeal.
