Revaluation 2017

All rateable values are reassessed at a general revaluation to ensure bills paid by any one ratepayer reflect changes over time in the value of their property relative to others. This helps maintain fairness in the rating system by updating valuations in line with changes in the market. The current rating list is based on the 2017 revaluation using rental values as at 1st April 2015. The Government has confirmed that the next revaluation will take place in 2022.

For more information on the 2017 revaluation, please visit the Valuation Office Agency website, or telephone 03000 501 501.
