Council tax valuations

Your council tax bill is made up of two parts: 50 per cent is based on the number of people living in the property and their circumstances, and 50 per cent is based on a valuation band related to the market value of homes in the city on 1st April 1991.

Further information

Council tax charges are based on band D amounts. Everyone pays a charge based on a proportion of a band D amount, so a person in band A pays 6/9 of the band D value, while someone in band H pays twice as much as a person in band D. So if band D is set at £900, then a band A charge will be £600, and a band H will be £1,800.

Each home, whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, maisonette, mobile home or houseboat, is placed in one of eight valuation bands.  

The current valuation bands are as follows:

If you are a potential buyer, please remember that if a home has been improved since 1991 it may be moved to a higher council tax band when the sale occurs.
