New build properties
If you have just moved in to a property and it has not been banded we have to wait to get this information from the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). Without knowing which band you are in we can't tell you how much you need to pay.
Can I appeal against my property’s valuation band?
The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) values domestic properties for Council Tax and the valuation is used to set your Council Tax band. If you think you are in the wrong band you need to contact the VOA.
More information about when you can challenge your band and what you need to do can be found on the Gov.UK website. If you challenge your band, you must continue to pay Council Tax at your current band until your appeal is decided.
You can contact the VOA via the Gov.UK website or by phone on 03000 501 501.
