Topic - contest your council tax band

adstapleton - on 26 Jan 2013
Reading moneysavingexpert.com the other night and there was a piece on how to contest your council tax band to your local council.

If successful, i.e. you convince the council you've been put into too high a band, they'll refund you for all the 'extra' tax you've paid and accordingly drop you into the cheaper bracket.

Arguments in favour of dropping your band typically centre around what band the house next door is, assuming it's of similar real value; square footage, number of rooms etc. Turns out the house next door to me is in the band below, it doesn't have as much character (whatever that is) but it is bigger. Sounds like i have a strong case...

Has anyone had a go at contesting their council tax banding and if successful, how?
