Housing: Valuation

Volume 506: debated on Thursday 4 March 2010

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 11 January 2010, Official Report, column 765W, on “Housing: Valuation”, how many dwellings are recorded (a) with a WK value significant code and (b) as having a reputational issue. (319737)

The number of dwellings recorded as (a) having a value significant code (VSC) of WK was 72,244 as at 2 September 2009, which represents 0.3 per cent. of all dwellings in council tax valuation lists in England and Wales. No specific recording is made of (b) a ‘reputational risk’. Where a value significant feature is to be recorded that is not covered by any of the other VSCs, it is given a WK code. The number of dwellings with each VSC is available in both the disclosure log on the Valuation Office Agency's website at

and the Library of the House.
