If you disagree with your rateable value, you have a legal right of appeal. This should be discussed with the Assessor at the Ayrshire Valuation Joint Board.
You should not delay payment while awaiting the outcome of any appeal or application for relief.
New owners, tenants or occupiers may appeal within four months of acquiring an interest in a property and where the Assessor alters the Valuation Roll (by making a new entry or changing the value); the appeal must be lodged within four months of the date of the Valuation Notice.
Appeals may be lodged at any time on the grounds of error or in the event of a material change of circumstances.
Most appeals are settled amicably between the Assessor and the ratepayer or appointed agent. If a settlement cannot be achieved then the appeal is heard by an independent Valuation Appeal Committee.
