Banding Queries

Questions

My banding is wrong, or too high, can you reduce it?

You’ll need to contact the Valuation Office Agency to appeal against your Council Tax band. 

 

What is the banding on a property?

The banding is determined by the Valuation Office Agency.

This band is determined by the value of your property (this value is the amount for which the property would have been expected to sell for on the open market on 1 April 1991). The table below shows the values for each band:

property bands
Band      
A   Up to £40,000
B £40,001 To £52,000
C £52,001 To £68,000
D £68,001 To £88,000
E £88,001 To £120,000
F £120,001 To £160,000
G £160,001 To £320,000
H £320,001 And over
