Non Domestic Appeals

Council Tax Banding Proposals
If you do not agree with the Band allocated to your house you can lodge a proposal provided certain criteria are met. You can find out more by using the Council Tax Proposal Link.
When the Assessor is preparing for a Revaluation or is made aware that a new lease or revised rent has been agreed between the parties he may ask you to complete a full Rental Information questionnaire or a shorter Rent Review questionnaire. These questionnaires deal specifically with the arrangement between the parties to the lease and, in addition to basic information such as the amount of annual rent paid and the date that rent became effective, seek information about the term (length) of the lease, various lease conditions, details of any incentives and improvements etc. If you have received a Rental Information questionnaire you can use this service to make a return on-line. You can also use this service to send an electronic copy of the lease or missives etc to the Assessor. To read more click on the Rent Questionnaire link opposite.
Shooting Rights Form
If you have received a Shooting Rights Return of Information Form or e-mail you can use this service to make a return on-line. You can also use this service to send electronic copies of plans and brochures relating to those rights. To read more click on the Shooting Rights Form link opposite.
Return of Information Form
The Assessor’s duty is to maintain the information in the Valuation Roll in as up to date a manner as is possible. In order to do this he will send out, in most years, a Return of Information Form. This details the information currently shown in the Valuation Roll and seeks to obtain information on any changes, such as the names of new owners, tenants and occupiers. It also invites information about physical changes to the property or the amount of any rent paid. This is not so extensive an enquiry as in the Rental Information questionnaire and indeed may prompt the Assessor to issue a full Rental Information questionnaire dealing specifically with the arrangements agreed between the parties to the lease.
If you have received a Return of Information Form you can use this service to make a return on-line to:
1) Specify any changes relating to:
a) the proprietor (owner), tenant or occupier,
b) physical or other changes to the property,
c) the rent of the property. (This may result in the Assessor issuing a separate Rental Information questionnaire.)
2) Confirm that there is ”No Change” to the information.
