Appealing against your Band

Up to 30 November 1993 everyone had the opportunity to challenge their property band. From 1 December 1993 onwards the grounds for appeal have been limited to the following:-

  • Where you believe that the banding should be changed because of an increase or reduction in the value of the property due to building work being carried out on the dwelling, i.e. demolition, extensions and converting the property from houses to flats;
  • Where you start or stop using part of your dwelling to carry out a business, or the balance between domestic and business use changes;
  • Where the listing officer has altered a list without a proposal having been made by a taxpayer;
  • Physical changes in the locality affecting value; or within six months of the following:
    • a band change to your property made by the Listing Officer;
    • a band change to a similar property to yours made by the court;becoming a new taxpayer

Reductions or increases in value resulting from the general state of the housing market do not affect the banding of your property.
