THE DEADLINE for Council Tax valuation appeals, 30 November, is approaching fast, writes Anne Shaw.

The first step in appealing is to contact your local valuation office, but Mark Wilson Incorporated Valuers and Surveyors will lodge an appeal for a fixed fee of pounds 25 (plus VAT), and a further pounds 50 (plus VAT), which will be retained only if the firm succeeds in getting the property transferred into a lower tax band. These fees cover the cost of appeal up to referral to a full hearing of the Lands Tribunal, when the need for further representation would need to be discussed. Details 071-935 9512.
