Can I appeal against my property’s valuation band?
The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) values domestic properties for council tax. This valuation is used to set your council tax band.
You might need to contact the VOA if you think your council tax band is wrong.
You can find out more about when you can challenge your band and what you need to do at gov.uk/challenge-council-tax-band.
If you challenge your band, you must continue to pay council tax at your current band until your appeal is decided.
You can contact the VOA at gov.uk/contact-voa. If you are unable to use the online service you can also contact the VOA on 03000 501 501.
New build or converted properties
If you have moved into a new build property or a recently converted property that needs to be banded for Council Tax please inform the Council Tax office at firstname.lastname@example.org providing your address, name and date of occupation along with any further information and we will contact the Valuation Office Agency to have the property banded.
If your property is newly built, we will not be able to charge you Council Tax until the property is finished or the date we decide the property will be complete. This is the date on which the property becomes a dwelling for Council Tax purposes and is entered into the Valuation List by the Valuation Office Agency.
