Council Tax is related to the valuation of your property. Each property has been valued and placed in one of eight council tax bands by the Valuation Office Agency, which is an executive agency sponsored by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), not Lambeth Council.

3. Appeal against your property banding
You must still pay your Council Tax even if you are making an appeal.
If you are responsible for paying the Council Tax, or an agent acting on behalf of someone who is, you may appeal against your property banding.
An appeal must be made in writing to the Council Tax Listing Officer at the Wimbledon Valuation Office
We do not value properties and so cannot deal with any appeals against banding. Any changes in the value of properties due to fluctuations in the housing market will not be a reason for changing your Council Tax band.
Making an appeal does not allow you to withhold payment of your Council Tax. If your appeal is successful you will be refunded any money you have overpaid. Any appeal must be made within six months of you becoming the responsible person for Council Tax at your property.
