Council Tax: Valuation

Volume 475: debated on Friday 16 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government under what circumstances a revaluation of a home for the purposes of council tax may be triggered. (206051)

Listing Officers of the Valuation Office Agency have a statutory responsibility to compile and maintain council tax valuation lists. They will look to review a list entry if information is brought to their attention to suggest that the banding is not correct. The most common instance is where a property which has been improved, is then sold, and the extent of the improvements is sufficient to move it into the next band. In such cases, it is only when the property is sold that any revision of council tax band is made.
