Appeal if you think your council tax band is wrong

Contact the Valuation Office Agency to appeal or for advice.

You can only appeal against the banding of your property:

  • after the property has been demolished
  • if a house has been converted into flats
  • if there are physical changes in the area that change the value of the property
  • if the Valuation Officer changes what band your property is in
  • within six months of becoming the person who pays the council tax
  • the Court making a band change to a property that is similar to yours
  • if you’ve made alterations to the property which changes the value
  • starting or stopping to use part of your property for business reasons

If you appeal, you must continue to pay council tax until your appeal is decided.
