Is It Possible To Challenge A Council Tax Band in Enfield Council?

Yes, you can challenge the Council tax band your property is in if you can convince the Valuation Office Agency of any one of the following:

  • Your property has changed (it has been damaged by actions such as flooding or fire or vandalized beyond repair, or been completely demolished or split into multiple parts)
  • Your property’s use has changed, which means that part of it is now being used for providing medical services, or part of it is being used as a school or office
  • The local area around your property in your council has changed(which means that the businesses or new infrastructure built around your residence has increased its residential or land value). If an office building is built down the road from your residence, the employees working there would demand the land of your property as it is near their office space and cuts down transport costs)

In order to move your residence to a lower council tax band, you will need to provide the following evidence. If you are aware of the sale prices of properties outside your council tax band you must provide:

  • The addresses of the properties
  • The sale prices of the relevant properties
  • The date on which these similar properties were valued in a different property band was sold. 

You must provide the evidence of 5 similar properties as yours (currently valued by the VOA in a different Council Tax Band in Enfield Council)

The similarity will be assessed in terms of:

  • Age
  • Style and Design
  • Property Area or size (The Valuation Office Agency will also look at properties larger in area than yours)
  • Types such as detached, semi-detached, bungalows, flats, cottages, or end-of-terrace houses. The similar property must resemble your own type of residence
  • The similar property must also be in the same street or estate as your property

Also, if you believe that your property is in a state of “economic unrepair” you can inform the VOA by using their online service. The evidence you will attach to your message will help the VOA officer to investigate your claim, this includes:

  • Photographs of the repairs to your property needed to restore it 
  • The history of the occupation of the premises including the names of occupants and if the land was used for any non-residential purposes
  • Plans for the future occupation or use of the residence
  • A schedule of the repairs to be conducted on the property, including the dates when each stage was initiated.

The VOA will decide based on this evidence whether your property’s rateable value will be negatively affected by the repairs or not.

As you are well aware that the government has not allocated funding to cover the extra costs our Council has incurred as a result of supporting businesses and Enfield residents during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Leader has written to the Chancellor of The Exchequer on 18th January 2021 asking for help in providing Enfield Council with the remaining £29m it needs to cover the impact of the 2021-22 pandemic.

We believe that the suggestion made in the government’s Spending Review in November 2020 to increase our Council tax, is not helpful as it increases the burden on people and businesses already facing the devastating effects of Covid-19. So we need your commitment to providing us with your name, email, and postcode here , this information will only be used to demonstrate your support for this funding request,
