Council Tax Bands
Information about your Council Tax band and how to appeal the band your house has been given.
The assessor, who works for the Lothian Valuation Joint Board, values your home and puts it into one of eight valuation bands from A to H. The value is based on how much your home was worth on the open market on 1 April 1991.
You can check the valuation band of your home on the Scottish Assessors Association website.
All Council Tax bands have a relationship with band D, known as the multiplier. This is set out in the table below.
Note: If you have purchased a property that has been improved since it was last purchased (e.g. an extension has been added) the assessor may revalue the property and place it in a higher valuation band.
|Value of the property
|Council Tax multiplier to band D
|Water & waste water charges multiplier to band D
Up to £27,000
How to appeal your Council Tax band
You can appeal against your Council Tax band by contacting the assessor. You must continue to pay your Council Tax until the assessor has made a decision on your appeal.
