The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) maintains the Council Tax Valuation List. This includes placing new properties within a Council Tax band and changing bands for properties when necessary.

Your home will have been given a Council Tax Band between A and H by the Valuation Office Agency. The band is assigned based on the estimated value of the property on 1 April 1991.




Up to £40,000


£40,001 to £52,000


£52,001 to £68,000


£68,001 to £88,000


£88,001 to £120,000


£120,001 to £160,000


£160,001 to £320,000


£320,001 and over


Remember, these are valuations as of 1 April 1991, they do not relate to the value of your home today.

Any improvements or alterations made to the property that may affect its value or band category will not be taken into consideration until the property is sold.

To find out more about your Council Tax band , see how domestic properties are assessed for Council Tax bands.
