Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council is reminding residents who think their property might be in the wrong Council Tax band that they can take advantage of a FREE council tax band valuation service, provided by the Valuation Office Agency.

The reminder comes after the Council received information from a resident who had been contacted by a company offering to apply on their behalf to get their council tax band reduced for a fee of around £150.

Cllr Martin Coffin, Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance, Innovation and Property, says: “While it is perfectly permissible for companies to offer to provide this service, residents may easily obtain the same Council Tax valuation service free of charge by contacting the Valuation Office directly.”

Anyone wishing to apply for a FREE council tax band valuation should contact the Valuation Office Agency by calling 0300 0501 501. Alternatively, application forms can be downloaded online at: https://www.gov.uk/council-tax-appeals/challenge-your-band
