council tax banding VOA valuation office agency dispute


Recommended Posts

I was in band c council tax for my house since 1991. Recently, the VOA, have changed my band to D.

Reason they said is because of a double storey side extension. This was built 20 years ago. They said it is a material change, and they only recently come aware of it. The band D is a lot more expensive. All the houses around me are band B or C.

I have also seen people buid extensions and on the council tax banding website, they have "improvement indicators" which means the band will change when they sell the house.

 

I have not sold my house. I have questioned this with the VOA, but they said they are allowed to change my band to D.

This seems very unfair. I have tried speaking to surveyors, but nobody to assist. Any help appreciated.

Seems fair to me, if the house with the double storey extension would be similar to properties also in band D.

 

But you can challenge the decision.

I've only ever known of the band being changed on the sale of an extended property.  If you are within three months of the decision you can go to a VOA tribunal.
