What is Revision?

Revision is the mechcanism by which an occupier of a property, an interest holder in that property, or a Local Authority may have the valuation of an individual property reassessed ("revised").  An application for Revision may result in a valuation increasing, decreasing or remaining the same. There are very specific grounds to be met, as set out in legislation, before a valuation may be revised. All applications for a revision of valuation must be accompanied by a fee of €250. This can applied for on our website here.

The address on this Form is incorrect (My address is 6 Main Street not 10 Main Street) can you send the correct Form for my address?

The Lot numbering used by the Valuation Office may not match the local number used in many instances. Our lot numbering system is derived from maps which were first produced as far back as the mid-18th century and so the local numbering systems do not correspond, although we are now moving to a system whereby they will. 

Where can I get information on the partial exemption for Sports Clubs?

The application form (Form R1) is available from the Revision Forms section. Please include all relevant documentation in relation to the partial exemption with your application.

Will I be contacted about my revision request ?

You will be contacted by the official designated to carry out the Revision in order to arrange a visit to the property. After inspecting the property, the Valuation Office will issue a certificate containing the proposed valuation and other details of the property.  If you are dissatisfied with the amount of the proposed valuation or other details contained in the certificate, you may make representations free of charge, in writing, to the Valuation Office within 40 days of the issue of the certificate.

Can I appeal against my valuation?

You may appeal against the valuation to the Valuation Tribunal within 28 days from the date of issue of the final valuation certificate. The Valuation Tribunal  is an independent body established to determine appeals of valuations made by the Valuation Office.  The appeal must be in writing on the specified form, must specify the grounds of appeal and be accompanied by the appropriate fee. Their website can be found here.

Is a decision of the Valuation Tribunal final?

A decision of the Valuation Tribunal is final in relation to the amount of the valuation. However, there is a further right of appeal to the High Court on a point of law.

What is the cost of making an Appeal to the Valuation Tribunal?

The amount of the fee payable to the Tribunal is determined by the valuation of the property. Please see The Valuation Tribunal website for more details.
