Council Tax Valuations

Council Tax Valuation
Your Council Tax bill is made up of two parts: 50% of it is based on the number of people in the property and their circumstances, and 50% is based on a valuation band that is decided by the Valuation Office Agency (which is part of Her Majesty's Revenues and Customs).
Each home, whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, maisonette, mobile home or houseboat, is placed in one of eight valuation bands. The bands are based on the market value of homes in the City area on 1 April 1991.


The current valuation bands are as follows:



 Range of Value  Ratio


Less than £40,000 6/9


£40,001 - £52,000 7/9


£52,001 - £68,000 8/9


£68,001 - £88,000 9/9 (1)


£88,001 - £120,000 11/9


£120,001 - £160,000    13/9


£160,001 - £320,000 15/9


Over £320,000 18/9 (2)

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.
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's of the band D value, while someone in band H pays twice as much as a person in band D. Therefore, if band D is set at £900, then a band A charge will be £600, and a band H will be £1,800.
