Proposed Valuation Certificate FAQs

What is Revaluation?

Revaluation is a process by which all rateable properties in a local authority area are valued periodically, and at the same time, by reference to a single valuation date. After the first revaluation of a local authority area is completed, Revaluation is then scheduled to take place every five to ten years on a recurring basis.
