What are Rateable Value charges?
Rateable Value is a fixed rate tariff used to calculate your bills if you don’t have a meter. You can find the rateable value of your property at the top of your bill.
It’s based on the council rates of your property (not your council tax band) and was assessed before 1990 by the Valuation Office of the Inland Revenue and can’t be changed.
A number of factors were taken into account when assessing properties including size of property, plot and amenities in the area.
We don’t have details of how individual properties were calculated or why similar properties in the same street have different values.
