Valuation and banding

The valuation of dwellings is carried out by the Valuation Office Agency. Each dwelling has been allocated one of 8 bands according to its open market value at 1st April 1991.

Appealing against a band

To appeal against a band, you can contact the VOA. If you cannot use the online service, call 03000 501 501. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 9:30am to 4:30pm. 

If you don’t agree with the banding, you have limited rights of appeal. Making an appeal does not allow you to withhold payment of Council Tax in the meantime as recovery action will continue. 

If your appeal is successful, the VOA will tell us of the change direct and you will be entitled to a full refund of any overpaid Council Tax.
