Valuation and banding

Council Tax is paid on most residential properties. 

There is one bill per property, whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, maisonette, mobile home or houseboat, and whether it is owned or rented.

The value of your home has been assessed by the listing officer at the Valuation Office Agency which is part of the Inland Revenue. The council doesn't carry out the valuation of properties for Council Tax. 

Check your Council Tax band here using your postcode.

Every property is given a value according to its open market value at 1 April 1991. The bands for England are below:

Band Range of values
A Up to and including £40,000
B £40,001 to £52,000
