All properties, including rented accommodation, have been valued for Council Tax. The Valuation Office Agency, which is part of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), is responsible for property valuations.
The Valuation Office Agency works out the valuation band of the property, based on the market value as at 1 April 1991. Changes in house prices after this date do not affect the valuation.
Depending on its value, each property is put into one of eight valuation bands, A to H. Every March, Council Tax charge is set for properties in Band D. Properties in other bands will then pay a higher or lower proportion of that charge.
