How to Appeal to the Valuation Office against your Council Tax
You only have 6 months from becoming the taxpayer of a property to appeal against your banding. After this time limit you may only appeal if the value has been reduced because part of the property has been demolished or part or all of it is now used as a business.
Even if you appeal you must continue to pay your Council Tax based on the current banding of your property. If your appeal is successful, we will send you a refund for any overpayments you have made.
How to Appeal?
Appeals should be made in writing to:-
The Listing Officer,
