1. Council Tax bands

In England, the Valuation Office Agency  put properties into a band based on their value on 1 April 1991 - not what they’re worth today.

Each property falls within one of the following eight bands:

Valuation band House values
A Up to and including £40,000
B £40,001 to £52,000
C £52,001 to £68,000
D £68,001 to £88,000
E £88,001 to £120,000
F £120,001 to £160,000
G £160,001 to £320,000
H £320,001 and above

If you make improvements and/or alterations to your property, the band will not change until:

  • you sell it
  • the ownership of the property is transferred
  • there is a change in a business element of the property
  • there is a revaluation
