Revaluation - LVJB Practice Notes

Although each Assessor is an independent statutory official, we work through the Scottish Assessors’ Association (SAA) to ensure, amongst other things, consistency of approach and practice in the administration of the Valuation Acts.  One way of ensuring this is by working together to produce valuation guidance reports, known as "Practice Notes". 

Where definitive local evidence exists within an Assessor’s own valuation area, valuation guidance notes are produced that reflect the valuation levels for specific categories of subject.  These Practice Notes are prepared by my office and deal with the subject categories that are listed below.

Adjustments to the originally approved text may be made from time to time. Only the latest approved versions appear on the web and can be identified from earlier versions by the “Approved for Publication Date”.
