Appealing against your valuation band
You can appeal against the valuation band your property is in, if one of the following applies:
- Your home has reduced in value because of demolition or adaptation work or because of a change in the area such as a new major road next to your home.
- The property has been re-valued because of past building or other work. The person appealing would normally be the new owner or occupier.
- You have to pay council tax on the property for the first time, in which case you must appeal within 6 months.
- You start using part of your home for business, or the balance between domestic and business use changes.
You cannot appeal directly to us about your council tax band. You must appeal to the Listing Officer at The Valuation Office Agency, St Peters House, 45, Victoria Street, St Albans, AL1 3WZ, or call 03000 504600.
