How your Council Tax band is worked out

Council Tax is based on the value of the property you live in. Each property is valued and placed in one of eight council tax bands by the Valuation Office Agency, part of HMRC. Lambeth Council does not set your Council Tax band, but it does set the rate that you have to pay.

The bands are based on what a home might have sold for in April 1991. Even if the property you live in was built recently, its band is based on an estimation of what its value would have been in 1991.

Appeal against your Council Tax band

If you think your home is not in the correct Council Tax band, you can appeal to the Valuation Office Agency.

You must keep paying the amount shown on your current Council Tax bill unless your appeal is successful and we send you a new bill.
