Appealing against your Rateable Value

The ratepayer, and certain others who have an interest in the property, can appeal against the Rateable Value if they believe it to be wrong.

If you wish to make an appeal or find more information, visit the Valuation Office Agency External Hyperlink website.

An appeal against your Rateable Value is not accepted by magistrates' courts as reasonable grounds for withholding payment of your bill, either in full or in part. If your appeal is successful and your Rateable Value is reduced, you can claim a refund for any overpayment you have made.
