Council tax - banding

Last Modified November 19, 2013
 

Every dwelling is billed for council tax, whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, maisonette, mobile home or house boat, and whether it is owned or rented.

Each property is allocated into one of eight bands, A to H. Properties in band D will pay the basic charge and properties in other bands will be charged proportionately.

What band am I in?

The amount of your council tax bill will depend on the band into which your property has been placed by the District Valuer. That band is based on the value your home was on 1 April 1991, when the valuations were carried out.
