Most dwellings are subject to Council Tax, there is one bill per dwelling whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, maisonette, mobile home or Houseboat, and whether it is owned or rented.
Each dwelling has been assessed by the Listing Officer of the Valuation Office Agency and placed into one of eight ” valuation bands”, from A to H according to its open market capital value as at the 1st April 1991, changes in value since then do not count.
The range of values, based on 1991 prices which each band covers is as follows:
Valuation band Range of property values (at 1st April 1991)
